On December 16, 2009, thousands of Copenhageners and visitors came out to celebrate Earth Hour Hopenhagen. The special event included a lantern parade and the presentation of The People's Orb to the UN Cabinet Chief, Vijay Nambiar. At 7 PM, Copenhagen switched off all of its lights and over 1,000 children carried lanterns through the streets, representing the world's hopes for a positive outcome from the Climate Summit. These beautiful photos showcase the event.
