In 2014 more than 162 countries with 7000 cities were united for the Earth Hour initiative. In Yerevan the external lighting of buildings and the symbols of the city as well as the main street lights switched off for one hour. This year Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia again joined the Earth Hour global movement.
WWF-Armenia together with the Ministry of Nature Protection, Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, Yerevan Municipality, Best Western Congress Hotel and Prometey Bank participated in the Earth Hour event. The intent of the initiative was to bring together the public, private sector, communities and other stakeholders around the idea of switching off the lights for one hour in support for decisive action on climate change.
Significant landmarks in Tbilisi such as the TV broadcasting tower, municipal buildings, the Peace Bridge, the Shota Rustaveli State Drama Theater and numerous other cultural, historical and commercial structures stood in darkness during Earth Hour in solidarity with the rest of the world as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.
Azerbaijan joined to Earth Hour Global campaign for the fourth time. During the event the most popular buildings in Baku – Maiden Tower, Shirvanshahs' Palace, Hotel Hilton, Park Boulevard, Hotel Absheron Marriott, Bridge Plaza and 28 Mall were switched off for one hour.
