Earth Hour 2018 is tomorrow March 24 and everyone around the world is asked to turn off their electric lights between 8:30 and 9:30 pm for the environment.

Ireland's Earth Hour Ambassador, Deirdre Lane, is pleased with the support received from numerous communities in the build up to the event.

The Sydney Opera House, the Eiffel Tower and Moscow's Red Square were among the world landmarks to go dark Saturday, as part of a global campaign to raise awareness about the impacts of climate change. This is done to call for more action on climate change.

Through Executive Order 356-2018, this city joins in the global movement as an act of support and commitment to the environment.

Besides Islamabad, Quetta, Peshawar, Nathiagali, Gilgit, and Sukkur, the Earth Hour will also be marked at WWF-Pakistan's Bahawalpur and Khanewal office as well as Faisalabad in Punjab.

Her body was found about a mile from the mobile home park where she lived, about two hours after she was reported missing. Out of thousands who lost power, just 165 customers were without electricity, PSEG Long Island reported about 8 p.m.

The group is inviting people to join them from 8.15pm to 9.30pm in Ebrington Square as lights across Derry are switched off for one hour.

And in the United States, which past year under President Donald Trump sensationally announced he would pull out of the Paris climate accord, the WWF said it would appeal to younger people to call on the government to support the fight against global warming. In 2011, Earth Hour entered the Beyond the Hour stage, when people started getting involved in environmental protection activities on a regular basis. This Earth Hour, we want to shine a light on the importance of biodiversity and nature.

"We have to take steps to save our nature, biodiversity and the earth".

Elaborating on the "Give Up To Give Back" campaign, the World Wildlife Federation on its official website said, "This year, Earth Hour is the launch of the GIVE UP movement".

But the people behind Earth Hour said the report doesn't reflect the stated aims behind the event, and have problems with conflating a symbolic gesture with energy savings.
