Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has to engage more than 172 countries and territories worldwide.
The Earth Hour 2016 is on 19th March 2016 at 8.30pm.
Earth Hour is more than an event. It is a movement that has achieved massive environmental impact, including legislation changes by harnessing the power of the crowd.

TRAXXfm wishes everyone a Happy Commonwealth Day.
Worldwide, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural and political achievement and we have much to celebrate today; however, progress towards gender parity has slowed in many places.
The WOrld Economic Forum predicted in 2014 that it would take until 2095 to achieve global gender parity. One year later in 2015, they estimated that a slowdown in the already glacial pace of progress meant the gender gap wouldn't close entirely until 2033.
So let's celebrate the International Womens' Day by Pledging for Parity. Learn more about this years' celebration at www.internationalwomensday.com

Apart from celebrating the spirit of togetherness of radio, this years' World Radio Day Celebration theme is "The Role of Radio in Humanitarian Emergency and Disaster". As we celebrate this years' event, we are preparing to be at the forefront in providing news and information to the public.
The power of radio lies on the journalists, who are most often among the first people to be on the scene to witness events and give a voice to victims, to raise awareness and mobilize resources, without this, there is no effective humanitarian action.
Today is a day to celebrate and recognize the unsung heroes of Radio, the men and women who at times put their safety and lives at risk, to bring the listeners, the latest and accurate news as it happens. Happy World Radio Day 2016.
