Cities around the world have been temporarily plunged into darkness to raise awareness about climate change.

Millions of people across the globe switched off their lights for an hour at 8.30pm local time in support of the WWF’s Earth Hour initiative.

Public buildings in the South Korean capital Seoul fell dark for an hour, as did the skyscrapers in Hong Kong’s iconic Victoria Harbour.

The group provided power-generating bikes for the public to ride during the Earth Hour event to help generate the electricity used through out the day.
