At least 65 Bulgarian cities and towns will take part in this year's Earth Hour initiative scheduled to take place next month.

Earth Hour will be held in Bulgaria on Saturday, March 23, between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm, when electric lights will be shut down as a reminder about climate change and the need to reduce the country's imprint.

This will be the country's sixth participation in the event.

A record drop of 56 megawatts of electricity consumption was registered in Bulgaria's capital Sofia during "Earth Hour 2012".

On Earth Hour people around the world will switch off their lights and power appliances for one hour, the action being a mainly symbolical global call to action to every individual, business and every community throughout the world to save energy and help prevent the deterioration of the global climate.

The idea behind it is for people to gather, to spend some time with friends in "peace and quiet", and have time to reflect on "themselves and their lives", according to the WWF.
