At exactly 8.30pm tonight the iconic Dubrovnik City Walls went into darkness as the Earth Hour 2019 action was marked in the city. For an hour the lights around the city walls were turned off to mark the World Wide Fund for Nature global initiative “Earth Hour” which this year is being held under the slogan “#Connect2Earth”
Earth Hour started as a lights-out event in Sydney in 2007. It has grown in stature over the years, as more than 180 countries and territories are now involved. More than 17,900 landmarks and monuments turned their lights off during last year’s event.
