Earth Hour 2017 Highlights: Why do you celebrate YOUR Earth Hour? (Earth Hour)

Major landmarks across the globe turned off their lights for sixty minutes Saturday night to mark Earth Hour, a worldwide event that aims to draw attention to climate change caused by the burning of coal, oil and gas to drive cars and power plants.

More than 3,000 landmarks in an unprecedented 187 countries and territories switched off their lights and millions of individuals, businesses and organizations across seven continents stepped forward at 8.30pm to take part in the World Wild Fund for Nature (WWF)’s Earth Hour.

This year’s event marked the tenth anniversary of the Earth Hour movement, which started as a one-city event in Sydney in 2007 and has since grown to become the world's largest grassroots movement for the environment.

Darkness fell on iconic landmarks last night that included the Sydney Opera House (Sydney), Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament (London), the Tokyo Tower (Tokyo), the Empire State Building (New York), and Singapore Flyer (Singapore).

Other notable landmarks that turned out their lights were the Pyramids of Egypt (Cairo), Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque (Abu Dhabi), Monumento a la Independencia (Mexico City) and the Eiffel Tower (Paris), which plunged into darkness for a full five minutes in a symbolic display.
