This Earth Hour 2012, starting at 8:30pm on Saturday, March 31, participate in the world's largest voluntary action for the environment by switching off your lights for one hour. What started out as an initiative in one city, Sydney, Australia, has grown into a global movement for change, with people, businesses and governments in over 130 countries across every continent coming together for the benefit of the planet. Now, can you go beyond the one hour?

    I love these ideas of earth hour/day/month... But when will we make changes in our daily lives and how can we do bigger movements for change. How can we make it part of maditiry education?? That's my question

  • Yishchara

    We are all one, we are connected. We need each other, us and our planet. The power of one is an amazing thing indeed. I will participate in this even every year and next year I plan to walk my candle through Yreka, CA.

    Awaraness is a very strong and big tool to change lives and the environment crucial for us and for our future generations.Let us do something for ourselves and the environment. or else one day everyone will fade away from this earth. Let us sow seeds of awareness towards protecting our environment and allow life to continue on this mother earth.

    Who/where/what are the 18 billion people mentioned in the video? A moment of lost effectiveness there - I thought there were about 7 billion on the planet? What does that number mean/represent?

    I have not heard of this before I watched the video... This week, I read an article by someone who took one day a month "off' from their tech, to reconnect with self. I was setting a date to do so and I came across this video. WOW talk about a cosmic connection! I will be forwarding this video to all I know and participating also.
