World Switches off for Earth Hour 2012

On March 31, 2012, to show their support and commitment towards Earth Hour 2012, hundreds of millions of people around the world, in thousands of cities, at hundreds of landmarks, on all seven continents, switched off their lights for one hour to display a universal commitment to protect the one thing that unites us all – the planet.


Earth Hour 2012

Earth Hour is organised by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s largest and most respected independent conservation organisations. The event encourages households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change.

This year, Earth Hour completed a record journey across more than 6,525 cities, towns and municipalities in 150 countries and territories. ThinktoSustain.com presents glimpses of ‘Before’ and ‘After’ imagery of various landmark structures from across the world as they switch-off their lights in support of Earth Hour.
