In a movement some claim was inspired by the Balinese day of absolute silence - "Nyepi," the World Wildlife Fund is busily recruiting supporters in 110 countries around the world to voluntarily turn off their lights for one hour at 8:30 pm on Saturday, March 27, 2010 to mark Earth Hour.

At least five major cities across Indonesia, including the island of Bali, have signaled strong support for the program aimed at reminding everyone of our precious diminishing natural resources and the dangers of climate change.

Fitrian Ardiansta, of WWF Indonesia said: "So many student groups and local communities in the cities of Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Surabaya and Denpasar have shown very high enthusiasm about Earth Hour. The mayor of Yogyakarta has expressed his support and is willing to turn off the lights at the city's iconic Tugu monument."

In a movement coordinated to make the world go calm and dark, some 1,882 cities are scheduled to turn off the lights for one hour at 8:30 pm on March 27, 2010.

According to Fitrian, the goal is for at least 10% of the residents in each of the five Indonesian cities to join the movement and turn off the lights at the appointed time.

According to the chairwoman of WWF Indonesia's advisory board, Pia Alisjahbana, the movement in 2009 was estimated to have saved 180 megawatts of power in Java and Bali, an amount sufficient to power 900 villages. Pia says the power savings target for this year is 500 megawatts.

Office buildings and hotels in Bali and Jakarta are joining the movement, pledging to turn off or reduce their lighting on the evening of March 27, 2010.
