Switch off your lights for Earth Hour at 8:30pm, Saturday 26 March 2011 and celebrate your commitment to the planet with the people of the world!

History of Earth Hour

WWF started Earth Hour in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, CN Tower in Toronto, Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

      Very good post! We think that just switching the lights off on March 26, 2011 is not enough. In fact, it could be considered as a symbolic act, rather than real action…Let’s surpass ourselves. Let’s try to save energy on a daily basis for an entire year, that is until the Earth Hour 2012.Let’s spread the word around using the social media.Let us take action!
