Started in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change, Earth Hour has become a global sustainability movement  participated by over  50 million people across 35 countries and territories. In Bandung, West Java, hundreds of people gathered at the courtyard of Gedung Sate, a historical art deco building that also serves as the office of the Governor of West Java. The event was participated by various communities, activists, students, and general public. Earth Hour has done a lot to raise awareness of sustainability issue, but there’s more to it than switching off lights for one hour once in a year. It’s all about giving people a mutual voice and working together to create a better future for our planet.”It’s time to go beyond the hour”
