Earth Hour was celebrated as a lights-off event for the first time by 2.2 million people in 2007 in Sydney, Australia. Since then the event has grown to include over 178 countries, becoming the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment. This year’s event takes place on March 25, 2017 from 8:30pm to 9:30pm.
Earth Hour’s short video takes a look at the progress towards a more sustainable planet, from solar-powered homes in India and Philippines to banned plastic in the Galapagos Islands.
