Earth Hour: Before and After

On March 23rd cities around the world showed their support for their work against climate change. First up is Vienna’s city hall which glows white in its brilliance before Earth Hour, followed by an eerie dark during the hour. Second comes the Bridge City Hall in Bamburg, Germany, which stands in vigil over the river. The Eiffel Tower went dark during Earth hour with much of Paris, be it only for five minutes due to security concerns. Last but not least is the lights of the city glowing across the harbour in Sydney, Australia, which disappear leaving the city in a darkness it hasn’t known for a long time.

Earth Hour is an annual event held near the end of March and was founded by the World Wide Fund for Nature. The event is less focused on reducing climate change by everyone turning off their inessential lights for an hour, as this would be a little futile, but more in raising awareness for the issue world wide.
