WWF-Australia and The Sydney Morning Herald are asking all of Sydney – its companies, government departments, individuals and families – to turn off their lights for just one hour. It’s a simple action if everyone takes part, sending a powerful message that we care about the future of the planet.
Earth Hour is the launch of a 12 month campaign to reduce Sydney’s greenhouse gas emissions by 5%. This could be achieved if all businesses and households turned off unused lights and appliances on standby.
But we need you to help make it happen.
Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve been blown away by the response from people outside of Sydney wanting to take part in Earth Hour, asking when it will becoming to a city near them.
Although this year’s Earth Hour will happen in Sydney, we hope that Earth Hour can grow into a global campaign. If you live outside of Sydney, you can show your support by joining us and turning off your lights at 7.30pm local time. Thanks for your support and enthusiasm!
