THE GLOBE PREPARES TO SWITCH OFF FOR EARTH HOUR

• 121 countries and territories across all seven continents to participate in global climate action
• Great Pyramids and Sphinx to lead Earth Hour’s landmark action on global warming
• Football superclub, Real Madrid, joins the greatest team ever assembled to tackle climate change
• Archbishop Desmond Tutu delivers an Earth Hour appeal to the planet

Tomorrow night at 8.30pm local time, the national government of Tuvalu will switch off power to the low-lying island nation, as one of the first countries to set in motion a 24-hour wave of hope and action on climate change that will sweep the world for Earth Hour.

From the small island nations of the South Pacific to the densely populated capital cities of the Americas, hundreds of millions of people from all walks of life across 121 countries and territories will unite for Earth Hour to show a solution to the indiscriminate threat of climate change is possible through collective action.

On the eve of Earth Hour, kids across the globe are being educated by scout leaders, school teachers and community figures on the benefits of the sustainable practices Earth Hour promotes, while Archbishop Desmond Tutu, on reflection of his work advocating civil rights equality in South Africa, for which he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, says Earth Hour can be a catalyst for global climate reform.

“On March 27 at 8.30pm, switch off your lights to support action against climate change,” said the Archbishop.
