Tallest tower to go dark on March 27

 To mark the occasion, the golden glow that cascades down the 828-metre tower will be turned off.

Other local landmarks such as Burj Al Arab, Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai Chamber of Commerce, Abu Dhabi Tower of Commerce and Hyatt Regency will also embrace darkness to express solidarity.

Expressing appreciation for the record number of participants this year, Earth Hour said Burj Khalifa was the epitome of global cooperation and, hence, perfectly reflected the campaign’s ideals. Earth Hour Executive Director Andy Ridley said growing number of participants symbolised the campaign’s popularity and world’s resolve to save the planet.
