MANILA, Philippines – Earth Hour is set for 8:30 today, Saturday, March 31 — whether you’re in the world or in space.
On earth, 147 countries are expected to participate in the 60-minute switch-off, Earth Hour co-founder and executive director Andy Ridley said in an interview with Rappler.
More than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries and territories participated in the movement in 2011, reaching 1.8 billion people across the globe, added Ridley.
And for the first time, the International Space Station has signed up for the cause, organizers declared.
Stationed approximately 400 kilometers above earth, astronaut André Kuipers will capture the impact of the biggest environmental action in human history.
