EcoTrack 11: Earth Hour takes place on Saturday

A worldwide event takes place on Saturday, March 29 at 8 p.m. (local time) to take action against climate change.

On March 29, 2008 at 8 p.m., join millions of people around the world in making a statement about climate change by turning off your lights for Earth Hour, an event created by the World Wildlife Fund.

Earth Hour was created by WWF in Sydney, Australia in 2007, and in one year has grown from an event in one city to a global movement. In 2008, millions of people, businesses, governments and civic organizations in nearly 200 cities around the globe will turn out for Earth Hour. More than 100 cities across North America will participate.

WWF invites everyone throughout North America and around the world to turn off the lights for an hour starting at 8 p.m. (your own local time) -- whether at home or at work, with friends and family or solo, in a big city or a small town.

For more information and additional action you can take against climate change, visit the Earth Hour web site.
