All Sri Lankans are requested to join hundreds of millions of people from around the world, by participating in the Earth Hour initiative and showing their commitment to preserving the planet.  Today you will see homes, schools, businesses and iconic landmarks across the planet turn off their lights for the appointed one hour – Earth Hour; on Saturday 28 March 2015 at 8.30 p.m. This single act transcends all barriers of race, religion, culture, geography and society and will enable Sri Lankans to be a part of a global celebration of the planet. 

Now in its ninth year, the annual lights out event has grown from a single-city initiative in 2007 to become the world’s largest display of environmental action. Earth Hour itself does not strive to directly solve the problem of climate change by reducing energy consumption.  Earth Hour is actually a symbolic gesture that unites people and lets them convey to the world, that they are willing to make a personal sacrifice to reduce global warming and climate change.   
Earth Hour Sri Lanka 2015 encourages individuals, businesses and corporates to show leadership through their actions by embracing environmental solutions. People are invited to use the Earth Hour platform to show the world how Sri Lankans are playing a vital role in reducing our environmental impact on the planet. You can pledge your support on www.earthhour.lk, join the movement and share your stories on the official Earth Hour Sri Lanka page www.facebook.com/EarthHourSriLanka.
