Lights go out across Dubai for Earth Hour for 9th year

20 March, 2016


From 8.30pm to 9.30pm on 19 March, Dubai’s most iconic landmarks, including the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and the Burj Al Arab hotel, turned their light switches from ‘on’ to ‘off’ to take action against climate change, with all essential lighting dimmed for the hour-long stand. Celebrating this iconic movement for its ninth year, the UAE joined Earth Hour in 2008, one year after its official launch in Australia in 2007.
