On Saturday, March 30th Hong Kong flipped the switch. The lights went out at 8:30 to celebrate Earth Hour. The global Earth Hour happens every year, major cities and landmarks turn off their lights for one hour to raise awareness for climate change. In Hong Kong even the Symphony of Lights was cancelled that night. This years theme was “Reduce. Rethink. Change the Way We Live”, targeting the general mindset of people. This year’s Earth Hour Village, its Hong Kong “headquarters”, was located at the public venue next to Tsum Sha Tsui Clock Tower with nine interactive booths for the public to visit and learn about climate change.
