Did you know that Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007? Since then, it’s become a global movement for change, and in 2017 Earth Hour celebrated 10 years. WWF’s Earth Hour is recognised as the biggest movement to protect our precious planet. Given this, there’s no shock when you hear that every year hundreds of millions of people around the world in more than 7000 cities across more than 180 countries take part in this remarkable conservation movement.
You too can be one of these people by taking part in Earth Hour on Saturday, March 27, at 8.30pm. At this moment you switch off your lights for 60 minutes as a symbolic gesture of solidarity to show you truly care about the future of our planet. You’ll be joining millions of people who are raising their voices for strong climate action.
You can take part whether you’re an individual, school or business. Just by signing up to #SwitchOff on the WWF Earth Hour website you can show key Australian politicians that they must act with urgency if we’re to save the home that we all share. To find out more, visit www.earthhour.org.au
Our actions today can change our tomorrow.
