Despite the terror attack, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben are joining more than 270 landmarks across the UK in switching off the lights for conservation charity WWF’s Earth Hour. The major landmarks include Buckingham Palace, Blackpool Tower, Brighton Pier, Senedd Building in Cardiff, Kelpies sculpture in Falkirk and Edinburgh Castle.

The Earth Hour will be celebrated all across the globe, starting in Samoa and ending 24 hours later in The Cook Islands, a time when more than 180 countries in the world will be participating together to send a message for Climate Change.

Apart from the major landmarks like Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, Kremlin, Egyptian Pyramids and Tokyo Tower participating in the event, members of the public are also being encouraged to take part in the event and switch off lights in their residence/offices for a period of time.

All you have to do is switch off your lights for one hour to join hundreds of millions around the world to send a clear signal that we must act and we must act now.
