Nine cities including the capital, Nicosia, participate in Earth Hour. 14 landmarks across the nation, including the Presidential Palace, switch off their lights for the world's greatest symbol of environmental action.

Cyprus aims to use the power of the crowd to push for a legislative change to ban plastic bags. They are aiming to get a 1000 signatures on their digital petition which will then be presented to the President. On the 19th of March, the digital signatures will be presented to the President of the Republic of Cyprus  at the Presidential Palace in Nicosia during lights off.
