Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement by WWF to unite people to take action for the planet. Engaging a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage hundreds of millions of supporters, individuals and organisations alike, in more than 7000 cities and towns in over 162 countries and territories worldwide.
As the world’s first open-source climate change campaign, Earth Hour has inspired millions worldwide to take action for our planet and get people to Use #YourPower to change climate change.
This year Earth Hour has a global focus on climate change – we are committed to creating change for the better. We can help do this by joining the movement. Create a tangible impact by inspiring action from our staff, customers and community.
We can celebrate Earth Hour 2015 by turning Lights-Off for one hour on March 28, 2015 at 8:30 pm local time. Since Earth Hour is an open-source movement, feel free to plan fun environmental activities based around your goals. Another way to get involved is by supporting an Earth Hour project. You can also pledge to achieve an environmental outcome.
So plan that candlelight dinner! Remind your friends and family to switch off their lights and all other unnecessary electrical appliances like air-conditioners wherever they are during Earth Hour itself and beyond; your call to action then becomes theirs to pass on as well! Use your social network to spread the word on Earth Hour.
The more people that get involved, the bigger the impact we can create for our planet!
