Join over 2 million people around the world to observe Earth Hour on March 29th. By switching off your lights, from 8:30 to 9:30 PM, you acknowledge and celebrate a commitment to do more for the planet beyond that hour.
The first Earth Hour event was on March 31 2007. WWF-Australia inspired Sydney-siders to show their support for climate change action. More than 2.2 million individuals and 2,000 businesses turned their lights out for one hour in the first Earth Hour event. Earth Hour 2013 took place in more than 7001 cities and towns in 153 countries and territories across all seven continents. Hundreds of millions of people switched their lights off for an hour, and the campaign experienced its biggest growth since 2009. Earth Hour 2014 will mark the eighth year of the campaign. More information about the event is available here.
Remember, in our 52 week sustainability challenge in 2012 that what candles you may use also impact GHG emissions; more information here.
