On Saturday 23 March at 8.30pm, thousands of people from across Scotland will join millions around the world in turning off their lights for one hour in a huge, symbolic show of support for action on climate change and for a more sustainable future.
In 2012, a record 152 countries took part for the biggest call to action for the protection of the planet.
There are several buildings going dark in Edinburgh – as well as Edinburgh Castle, the Scottish Parliament, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the National Gallery of Scotland and the Royal Scottish Academy, the Balmoral Hotel, Camera Obscura and the National Monument have all confirmed their lights are going out for the Hour.
Events in Edinburgh include a candlelit service during Earth Hour open to all at the Church of the Sacred Heart on Lauriston St.
