Earth Hour

March 28

A worldwide movement established in 2007 by the WWF, Earth Hour encourages households, communities and businesses to turn off their lights for an hour as a gesture for their commitment to a better planet. Earth Hour typically occurs from 8:30pm to 9:30pm on the last Saturday in March.

Starting off as a lights-off event in Syndey, Earth Hour has since grown to involve more than 7000 cities and towns all over the world. Although the one-hour black-out remains the key driver of Earth Hour, other activities are also held on the day to raise awareness – these include candlelight walks and runs as well as Earth Hour movie nights featuring environmentally-themed movie marathons all over Australia.
