At this year’s so-called “Earth Hour” for more climate protection there was a record attendance in Germany in the evening.
For one hour at 8:30 p.m., the lights went out not only at the Brandenburg Gate, Neuschwanstein Castle and Dresden Frauenkirche, explained the WWF. 575 cities and municipalities as well as 448 companies took part. It was the 15th event of its kind worldwide.
