On March 24 from 20:30-21:30 Armenia participated in Earth Hour global action for the 10th time by turning off the street lights of Yerevan and other cities for one hour.

The objective of this global awareness raising campaign is to unite the public, businesses, communities and other stakeholders around the idea of turning off the lights for one hour to shift public interest towards important ecological issues. The main topic for this year is the conservation of biodiversity and the prevention of the effects of human activities on the degradation of biodiversity.

Earth hour environmental campaign was implemented for the first time in Sydney, Australia in 2007, where over 2 million people switched off lights to unite humanity in its efforts to combat climate change. Since then the number of participating countries and cities is only increasing. This year over 180 countries participated in this event.
