Earth Hour 2015 will be observed on Saturday, 28 March, from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm worldwide. People across the world will observe the occasion by turning off lights, navigating by star and candlelight, to raise awareness about climate change.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, describing Earth Hour's importance, said, "Earth Hour is a way for the citizens of the world to send a clear message that they want action on climate change."
This year, 170 countries including 1,200 landmarks and close to 40 UNESCO world heritage sites will be turning lights off for an hour to participate in the movement.
The Earth Hour is a worldwide movement. But just to encourage you and highlight the importance of the occasion, we have compiled a list of quotes.
