It all started with a question: How can we inspire people to take action on climate change?

The answer: Ask the people of Sydney Australia to turn off their lights for one hour.
On 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour - Earth Hour. This massive collective effort reduced Sydney's energy consumption by 10.2% for one hour, which is the equivalent effect of taking 48,000 cars off the road for a year.

Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming.

On March 29, 2008 at 8pm, join the millions of people in some of the world's major cities, including Copenhagen, Toronto, Chicago, Melbourne, Brisbane and Tel Aviv to unite and switch off for Earth Hour. Yes it can be done, play your part.
