Earth Hour 2011 - In Greece the Countdown begins with the Parthenon...

The Acropolis, a symbol of western civilization, will be the world’s oldest landmark to turn off the lights for Earth Hour and join the global movement against climate change.

At 8:30PM local time the Parthenon, the centrepiece of the Acropolis, will turn black and join hundreds of millions people from around the globe to switch off the lights in the first global election on the future of our planet. 

From Athens to Auckland, London, Sydney, New York and Singapore, we'll be joining the rest of the world today 26 March 2011 to switch off our lights. 

It’s a reminder to us all that we only have one planet Earth. And it’s an urgent message that we want to reduce the impact our energy system has on that planet. Of course this one hour is symbolic, we should all be doing our utmost to reduce our energy consumption,  every day, every hour, every minute...

Join us!

Ready, steady, go...lights out!
