Every year, millions of people around the world take part in this annual symbolic lights out event on a Saturday night, from 8:30 to 9:30 PM local time. Weill Cornell Medicine is joining this event for the tenth consecutive year with its work-day version of Earth Hour on Thursday, March 22 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM .
