5. Earth Hour (Mar. 28)

This event doesn’t really have a location because, well, it’s everywhere! On March 28th between 8:30 and 9:30pm, everyone is encouraged to turn their lights off in support of taking action on a big issue we have today – climate change. So make sure to turn those lights off and try living by candlelight for an hour to support this great cause.
