Supported by numerous environmentalist people and organisations, creating an effect capable to turn climate change upside down and increasing awareness on this matter are targeted with this campaign. The campaign, where lights are turned off for an hour, is aimed at raising awareness of the issues our world currently faces such as climate change, depletion of water resources, and loss of biological diversity.
