WHAT IS EARTH HOUR Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The event is held worldwide annually encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. towards the end of March, as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.

Also known as Makara Sankranthi, a reference to the event of the Sun entering the zodiac sign of Makara or Capricorn.’ In India, the festival is celebrated for three days.
