We need to organize and make aware about it to the common man through different other means like introducing through schools and colleges.  In my city one of the reputed institution, Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad last year started this and they observed this in their college campus last year.  The report says that that was the first time attempt a campus such as IIT Hyderabad has done.  This was initiated by one Mr. Sampath Kumar a Mechanical Engineering student.   According to him the idea behind shutting off lights was not to save electricity but to send a powerful message across the country about the seriousness of Global Warming.
This type of  initiative if each one take we can definitely put a slow down in the speed of global warming level.  

Earth Hour is first initiated at the city of Sydney in Australia in the year 2007, from that small step Earth Hour has grown into a global observance.  It has now become a great movement and a great symbol of hope for millions around the world.   The reports show that 128 countries are now actively involving in this movement. Last year’s celebration (just three years after its inception) is worth noting here. Watch these videos.
