Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Speaker of the Knesset Yuli Edelstein dimmed the lights of the Knesset at 8:04 pm Monday in solidarity with International Earth Day 2013.

The switch that Netanyahu and Edelstein symbolically flipped for this day of conserving energy is located near the entrance of the Knesset, beside Edelstein's office.

Earth Day encourages people around the world to switch off lights for one hour beginning at 8 pm to stress awareness of conserving the planet.
