From that website:
Since its inception three years ago, Earth Hour has captured the world’s imagination by becoming a global phenomenon. Earth Hour 2009 inspired one Billion people in 4100 cities and 88 countries to switch off. Over 10 Million Filipinos in 647 towns, cities and municipalities joined in – more than anywhere else on Earth. This year Earth Hour Philippines aims for the participation of over 15 Million Filipinos in over 1000 towns and cities nationwide.
Really? How come it’s not recognized globally? Is it because we’re from a developing country/emerging market and not one of G20 countries?
