Hellas: Athens participated in Earth Hour

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   Created to take a stand against the threat of climate change, Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming. It started as a local event in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million Sydney residents turned the switch off for an hour. In 2008, 24 cities participated in Earth Hour at 8pm on March 29, including Athens. For 60 minutes, famous Greek monuments were kept in the dark, signaling Greece’s social sensitivity on environmental issues. Earth Hour Hellas: earthhourhellas.wordpress.com
