To spread the message of energy conservation and to raise awareness of the importance of saving energy, Istanbul will join millions across the world in observing "Earth Hour" on March 25. As a part of Earth Day, one of the most important environmental movements in the world, world capitals and centers will switch off their lights simultaneously. The Turkish subsidiary of the organization is sponsored by Viko by Panasonic and the lights are scheduled to be turned off between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Several landmarks in Turkey, such as the July 15 Martyrs Bridge, Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge and Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge as well as the Dolmabahçe Palace, Blue Mosque, Ephesus, Selimiye Mosque and the fairy chimneys in Cappadocia will be plunged into darkness for Earth Hour. The motto of this year's event is: "Switch off if unnecessary, light up your future."
The Turkish part of the organization is also collaborating with the World Wildlife Fund to protect the forests of the Mediterranean against global climate change. Those who want to contribute to the cause can text "ORMAN" (forest) to 8486 and donate TL 10 ($2.75). Last year, millions of people from 178 country participated in the Earth Hour events. Earth Hour aims to raise awareness about global climate change by urging millions of people to switch off their lights for an hour.
