Czechs to join in annual Earth Hour campaign


Czechs will join millions of people around the globe in turning off their lights for 60 minutes on Saturday evening starting at 8:30pm local time in a symbolic show of support for the Earth Hour campaign against climate change.

Earth Hour will dim some of Prague’s best known landmarks including Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square or the Žižkov TV tower.

Prague and other cities around the Czech Republic first marked Earth Hour in 2012. Over 150 towns and cities are expected to join the campaign this year.
