Since then it has grown to a massive global event. In 2013, more than 7,000 cities and towns worldwide participated in this campaign. Every year landmarks and well-known buildings around the world such as the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, the Petronas towers in Malaysia, the UK Parliament, Buckingham Palace and the Empire State Building take part and “go dark” for Earth Hour.
