Famously started as a lights out event in Sydney, Australia in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into a powerful movement for climate change prevention.
Committed to inspiring governments around the world to push climate change to the top of the agenda, the movement has already made much progress with climate-friendly laws and policies.
From funding solar-powered homes to banning plastic in the World Heritage site of the Galapagos Islands, Earth Hour has achieved many environmental milestones over the years. But despite these advancements, there are still countless issues standing in the way of climate change prevention.
That’s why Earth Hour needs you to help make as much ‘noise’ as possible for action on climate change. The more people the movement has on board, the more effective it can be in its environmental efforts. So if you’d like to play your part and show that you care for the planet's future, then be sure to join in on the action on the 25 March at 8:30pm. But before you do, why not take a moment to explore different ways to support this worthy cause?
4 Ways To Support Earth Hour
Turn Off All Your Lights
Take a stand against climate change and show your concern for this issue by joining millions across the globe as they switch off their lights from 8:30pm to 9:30pm on the 25th March.
Donate Your Facebook Feed
The Change Climate Change organisation have set up a campaign that allows you to donate your Facebook feed from the 22nd to the 25th of March. By giving this organisation permission to share 5 Earth Hour-focused posts on your personal newsfeed, you can help shine a light on climate change action and draw attention to the #ChangeClimateChange movement.
Host An Event
Why stop at turning off your lights when you can host your very own event? Be it a candle-lit dinner, concert or party, one small event can make a big difference when it comes to raising awareness about the severity of climate change!
