Lights out as millions around the world mark Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

The event is held worldwide annually encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on the last Saturday in March, as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.

See below on how we celebrated Earth Hour at Shangri-la’s Fijian Resort & Spa. Staff including our in-house guest were involved in the celebration.

Earth Hour

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

The event is held worldwide annually encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on the last Saturday in March, as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.[1]

It was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007.

Since then it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide. Today, Earth Hour engages a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues.

The one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement.
