Climate protection on», which will take place on 27 March from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm (MEZ).

Earth Hour is a major annual climate and environmental protection campaign initiated by WWF 14 years ago. The idea behind it: Once a year, millions of people around the world switch off the lights for one hour. Ziel ist es, gemeinsam ein Zeichen für den Umwelt- und Klimaschutz zu setzen. Last year, 373 cities in Germany, including Frankfurt/Main, and 190 countries worldwide participated in the initiative. Private individuals as well as cities, companies and businesses can join this initiative.
Frank Schneider, CEO of publity AG, comments: «We didn’t hesitate for a second to take part in WWF’s Earth Hour this year. At a time when the effects of the climate and environmental crisis are becoming increasingly visible, initiatives like these are more important than ever. It will also be impressive to experience the otherwise luminous Frankfurt skyline in the dark for once. We are looking forward to the initiative on Saturday.»
