In London, landmarks like the Houses of Parliament participate in the Earth Hour to participate in the event.

What is Earth Hour?

Since 2007, the World Wildlife Federation has asked world famous landmarks to turn off their lights to raise awareness of climate change and other environmental issues.

The World Wildlife Federation has urged citizens to give 60 minutes of their daily life today to the environment and engage in eco-friendly and positive activities.

While some question the event’s effectiveness, others view it as a symbolic gesture of environmental consciousness.
