Tonight is Earth Hour night. People, businesses and iconic buildings all around the world are switching off their lights for an hour at 8.30pm local time to draw attention to the environment and climate change.
Last year saw hundreds of millions of people across 3,000 cities and towns in 83 countries participate and the hope is that this year's event can be even bigger.
Earth Hour is organised by the WWF and they have produced a number of resources to help people get involved:

- get an Earth Hour blog widget here: http://earthhour.wwf.org.uk/

The WWF are also encouraging people to tweet about their Earth Hour experience using the hashtag #earthhour as well as uploading photos and videos to other social channels.
Exciting to see if the Earth Hour event can be even bigger than last year!
