On that date the environmental campaigners are encouraging people to switch their lights off from 20:30 in support of future sustainability, with The Drum running each poster on the morning of its release.

In the run-up to Earth Hour, designer and director Steven Qua wants to encourage people to turn their lights off and let their minds wander.

“Lights have always annoyed me, street lights, car headlights, bedside lights, bath room lights, as they stop me from getting a good look at the moon," said Steven. "When I was young I lived in a town with a lot of dogs, I used to lie in bed at night looking at the moon, listening to the barking. Now I’ve moved away I miss the barking in the dark. Every day I turn the lights off look at the moon and bark myself to sleep.”
