Earth Hour is the largest environmental event in history, when hundreds of millions of people, businesses and governments around the world unite each year to support it.

It all started in 2007, when WWF (World Wildlife Fund)-Australia inspired Sydney-siders to show their support for climate change action in the first ever Earth Hour event.

It showed that everyone, from children to CEOs and politicians, has the power to change the world they live in.

In Sydney, Australia, 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights out for one hour to take a stand against climate change.

One year later, in 2008, the plan was to take Earth Hour to the rest of Australia. But then the City of Toronto, Canada, signed up and it wasn’t long before 35 countries and almost 400 cities and towns were part of the event.

It said something compelling to the world: that the climate challenges facing our planet are so significant that change needs to be global.

This amazing project quickly became a global event. It’s scheduled on the last Saturday of every March – closely coinciding with the equinox to ensure most cities are in darkness as it rolled out around the Earth.

In 2011, more than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2011 alone, sending a powerful message for action on climate change.

Without a doubt, it’s shown how great things can be achieved when people come togethe for a common cause.
