Give me some of that earth lovin’
Earth Hour was first launched in 2007 in Sydney. What was then a grassroots movement saw 2.2 million people and 2100 businesses participate in the “lights off” event.
In the last 10 years, Earth Hour has exploded into a global symbol of commitment to the environment. It is now celebrated in more than 172 countries.
This year, WWF (World Wildlife Fund), is celebrating 10 years of Earth Hour and 10 years of progress on increasing awareness for climate change.
Want to participate? Get together with your family and friends and join the estimated 6 million Australians who will switch off for an hour to show support for our planet and its future.
From 8.30-9.30pm on Saturday, March 25, landmarks, communities and families across Australia will be switching off their lights in a symbolic act.
If you’re looking to get involved or hold an event, we’d recommend hosting it at home, as not every business open on the night will be participating in Earth Hour.
To register your own event, or find out what’s happening near you, head to the official Earth Hour website.
Show you care; become part of the Earth Hour movement and switch off to #JoinTheFuture.
