State governor, P.B. Acharya has appealed to citizens of Nagaland to join Raj Bhavan in observing Earth Hour on March 25 from 8:30 a.m.to 9:30 p.m.by switching off lights.

HollywoodLifers, are you observing Earth Hour this year? Earth Hour 2017 marks the ten years of the milestone.

The world will celebrate Earth Hour on Saturday night by switching off lights and going "dark" for one hour to encourage participation in fighting climate change. The Earth Hour travels this year from Samoa (independent country) to The Cook Islands (another independent country) across the worldwide date line in the Pacific Ocean. From church groups to classrooms full of children its important decision makers, politicians and business leaders are left in no doubt people care about the impacts of climate change and want action.

Colin Butfield, director of campaigns at WWF, said: "Today, hundreds of millions of people will be showing global unity on climate change during Earth Hour".

The research also revealed that nearly seven out of ten kids think it's very important for people to do what they can to protect the environment, with the major sentiment of kids (83%) being that they and their family can take action. Just turn off the non-essential lights at your home, working place or any other place where you have an access to do so. But, it is the time to deliver the action needed to protect the planet, it says. Instead, it's meant to make people more conscious of the energy they use and consume during the course of their everyday life, and think about the source of that energy.
