Earth Hour 2017 marks ten years since the lights-out event first started in Australia in 2007.
Launched by WWF, the event has become the world’s biggest grassroots environmental movement, where landmarks and communities switch off their lights to show their support for a brighter future for the planet.
Now celebrated in over 170 countries, and over 7,000 cities, with over 6 million Australians (1 in 4) taking part, Earth Hour has one mission: to unite people to protect the planet and show they care about its future.
On Saturday March 25, Australians will be called upon to turn off their lights between 8.30-9.30pm as a symbol of support for a low pollution, clean energy future for all generations.
Families, friends, businesses, schools and communities across the country can register and submit information about their own events at www.earthhour.org.au in advance of the global event.
