The UN will help the call for a bright future for people and planet this Saturday at 8.30pm local time by switching off the lights for Earth Hour at the iconic UN Headquarters building in New York.
The global initiative unites hundreds of millions of people, communities, companies and governments around the world to turn off their lights for one hour in a symbolic show of support for climate and sustainability action and for providing clean energy to the more than one billion people who lack access to electricity today.
All UN staff members around the world have also been encouraged to
take part both in their office and at home.
