EARTH HOUR
, run by WWF, the conservation organization, is a global climate change initiative which calls on individuals and businesses around the world, to turn off their lights for one hour on Saturday, March 28 2009 between 8.30 pm and 9.30 pm.

Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome's Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness

In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. This year, Earth Hour grows into a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community to vote, a call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet.


EARTH HOUR: First time in Indonesia


This year, for the very first time Earth Hour implemented in Indonesia, and Jakarta chosen as the first area for Indonesia kick off.

On Saturday, 28 March 2009, starting from 8.30pm, the community of Jakarta will witness and be part of global action in switching off lights for 1 hour.

Switching off the lights in Jakarta and its surrounding for one hour, is equal to:
= reduce 300 MWh of electricity usage (enough to rest 1 power plant and provide electricity to 900 villages)
= save up the average electricity bills of Jakarta around Rp 200 million
= reduce 284 tones of CO2
= save more than 284 trees
= produce clean air for more than 568 people
