Earth Hour 2010

Last year I wrote about Earth Hour and the campaign's goal to present the leaders of the world our feeling on glogal warming at the Global Climate Change Conference that took place in Copenhagen. Earth Hour called on all citizens of the world to switch off their lights as a sign to our leaders to do something to combat global warming.

This year Earth Hour takes place on Saturday 27 March at 8.30pm. The campaign again calls to action every individual, every business and every community throughout the world to stand up, take responsibility and get involved towards a sustainable future. Around the world Iconic buildings and landmarks will stand in darkness. People across the world will turn off their lights and join together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet. Show your support and sign up now to make 2010 the biggest Earth Hour yet!.

About Earth Hour

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million homes and businesses turned their lights off for one hour to make their stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The CN Tower in Toronto, The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

In March 2009, hundreds of millions of people took part in the third Earth Hour. Over 4000 cities in 88 countries officially switched off to pledge their support for the planet, making Earth Hour 2009 the world’s largest global climate change initiative.

Earth Hour is organized by WWF. With almost 5 million supporters and a global network in over 100 countries, it’s one of the world's largest and most respected independent conservation organizations. WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the Earth's natural environment and build a future where people live in harmony with nature.
