Since 2009, WWF-Brasil organizes Earth Hour in the country. In 2011 a new engagement and participation record was set, with 124 cities turning off the lights for the planet. In Rio de Janeiro there was a big and moving celebration at Arcos da Lapa, a colonial era aqueduct that is now one of the wonderful city´s landmarks, to mark the date as a celebration for life and the environment.
