We're all familiar with the annual Earth Hour event during which participants choose to turn off all non-essential lights for an hour

As a global environmental initiative by WWF, Earth Hour asks everyone to take personal accountability for their impact on the planet and make behavioural changes to facilitate a sustainable lifestyle, to help minimise the adverse impacts of climate change.

As an extension of this, WWF-Malaysia is once again organising the Earth Hour Night Walk in an effort to build public support for environmentally sustainable action and raise funds for their conservation efforts

The Earth Hour Night Walk 2017 in Petaling Jaya is co-organised by WWF-Malaysia, The Starling Mall, and the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ). MBPJ is the two-time Earth Hour City Challenge National Winner.
