In fact, I'm going to unplug any electrical device that is within my reach.

Earth Hour, which is what this initiative has been called to reduce energy, will begin at 10.00 Spanish time in Sydney, Australia, when the lights of the Opera House and Harbor Bridge go out.

Other participants of the initiative, which started for the first time last year also in Sydney, will do the same at 20.00 local time today, including cities like Bangkok, London or Chicago. More than 35 countries have shown their support for this gesture.

Summoned by the WWF environmental organization, the blackout is also a symbol of individual commitment to reduce the use of energy and the fight against climate change. Earth Hour aims to demonstrate that working together can have a positive impact on the fight against climate change.

Last year 2 million people and 2,000 companies participated in the campaign of Sydney. A 10.2% decrease in energy consumption was achieved, which is comparable to removing more than 48,000 vehicles from the circulation. 97% of the population in Sydney knew about the campaign, according to the organizing NGO.

Since Viajablog We encourage you to participate in such a fantastic initiative environmental.

Remember, Think globally and act locally!
