Earth Day 2017: World will witness blackout.
Earth Day 2017 will take place on 25th of March which will see a global blackout. This Earth Hour 2017 will see some of the world's best known landmarks disappear from city skylines. World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) Earth Hour – now in its tenth year – is the world’s largest demonstration of support for action on climate change. It was founded by WWF in Sydney in 2007, and is designed to increase awareness about energy consumption and environmental issues including rising temperatures and destruction of habitats on a global scale. Paris was named the Global Earth Hour Capital for 2016 for is long-term vision in climate action as well as its commitment to sustainability within business, civil society and other global cities, to which it has become a role model thanks in part to holding COP21 in 2015.
