Melba UnderwoodMar 27, 2017

Earth Hour was started by the Australian chapter of the World Wildlife Organization (WWF).

Level 2, an all day dining restaurant offers world cuisine and interactive kitchens; Indyaki, an Indian specialty theme restaurant imparts a truly global appeal.

Countries and prominent personalities worldwide have joined in the cause to observe Earth Hour.

Members of the public are also being encouraged to take part by switching off their lights for the hour. At 8:30pm local time on Saturday many prominent landmarks from coast to coast will suddenly go dark.

2017 marks the 10th anniversary of Earth Hour - the world's biggest environment event.

Haven-O'Donnell has been diligently working to get more community members involved and hopes to turn off the street lights for 2018's Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is marked around the world with millions expected to turn off lights for 60 minutes to raise awareness for climate change.

While many homes and businesses in the city will simply flick the light switch and go dark for Earth Hour, others are taking different steps to promote energy efficiency on Saturday.

Meantime, Sen. Sonny Angara yesterday urged young Filipinos to be "environment warriors" beyond Earth Hour.

On 25 March, 2017 millions of people from around 170 countries and territories across the globe participated in the annual bid to highlight global warming and to "Change Climate Change".

From Australia, it moved westward through Asia, with numerous skyscrapers ringing Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour going dark in solidarity, while at Myanmar's most sacred pagoda, the Shwedagon, 10,000 oil lamps were lit to shine a light on climate action.

Thanks to human activities like burning fossil fuels and cutting down vast swathes of forest, climate change has begun to take a clear toll on the planet.

Earth Hour was initially launched in 2007 as a global movement of solidarity for climate action.

Though the goals of Earth Hour are lofty, there are dissenting voices that doubt its efficacy. Many experts are convinced that we have already passed a tipping point, and climate change is now inevitable. We all want a healthy life for the next-generation which is why Earth Hour is important.
