Lets for a change from the heavy politics do our small bit to save Mother Earth from the threats of global warming on March 28th.

Climate Change is undoubtedly and regrettably, the biggest immediate long-term environmental challenge we face. A failure to come to sound policy outcomes on climate change will not only have a negative environmental impact but also social and economic consequences for all of us.

Keen to do your bit to save Mother Earth? Join Nobel peace prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu, actor Aamir Khan among others to create awareness on climate change.

Over two million people across the world will switch off lights at their homes and offices for an hour at 8.30 p.m. on March 28 to kick-start the ‘Earth Hour’ campaign.

“Climate change is the greatest human induced crisis facing the world today. It is totally indiscriminate of race, culture and religion. It affects every human being on the planet,” Archbishop Tutu said in a statement here.

‘Earth Hour’ is a part of the World Wildlife Fund’s initiative that began in Sydney in 2007 as a one-city campaign when over two million people switched off their lights for an hour. In 2008, the campaign went global with over 50 million people in 371 cities, across 35 countries flicking the switch.

Stand up and join us in the fight against climate change. Support Earth Hour.
