Samantha Webb, adds that this year’s Earth Hour is another step in the growing global movement for decisive action on climate change, one which highlights the need to reduce the impact on Australia’s great outdoors.
So on Saturday March 19, millions of Australians will take part in Earth Hour from 8:30-9.30pm to show their support a low pollution, clean energy future, one in which we can continue to enjoy the best of nature and our great Aussie outdoor lifestyle
Earth Hour is a great home-grown success story: an Aussie campaign designed to draw attention to tackling climate change and get people talking about what we can do to help. What started as a one-city, one-year campaign grew into the world’s largest mass participation event for the planet with over 7,000 cities in 162 countries taking part. In Australia, Earth Hour is something that brings communities together to demonstrate their support for action to tackle climate change, with one in every three Aussies taking part in 2014.
Earth hour involves turn off your lights for one hour between 8.30PM and 9.30PM on Saturday 19 March.
