We conducted four programs about Earth Hour on the same day, we organised 'Pedal for the Planet' a cycle rally by our group members for a distance of 5.1 km connecting three different areas with their busy public places. During the rally, placards were mounted on the cycles with the main banner and pamphlets were distributed by our members to the public and made aware of Earth Hour and conserving of energy. Important public places like bus terminus, police stations and employees gate has been covered during the rally, pamphlets were distributed and posters were pasted.
