At 8:30 PM on Saturday 26 March, lights in more than 130 countries across the planet will switch off for "Earth Hour." Earth Hour events are being run around the world - including by students in Morocco, Girl Scouts in America, bank staff in Qatar and researchers in the Antarctic.

This year, Earth Hour is challenging people to go "Beyond the Hour" by committing to actions that'll help make the world a better place, and to sharing these actions with the world via messages, pictures and videos online.

"Google is also supporting Earth Hour with the global campaign with a number of Google tools and services, including a YouTube platform to promote the Beyond the Hour campaign and to our share commitments to action beyond the hour with people around the world, and with Google Grants - in-kind advertising for non-profits - to increase awareness for Earth Hour online," Google said.
