Just a reminder to join other folks around the world from 8:30 – 9:30 PM (local time) and turn off your lights to raise awareness about the sustainability of our planet. Even though this is just an hour-long action it is hopefully the stepping stone to conserving and saving our planet…one person at a time. Click here to see celebrations in other parts of the world.
Andy Ridley is the CEO and Co-Founder of Earth Hour, the global environmental movement initiated in Sydney, Australia in 2007 as a campaign for action on climate change. The Earth Hour project was started six years ago. It has grown to become the world’s largest mass participation event in history. From 1 to over 7,000 cities. From 1 country to 7 continents. From 2 million to hundreds of millions of people.
According to Andy: “Earth Hour’s mission is three-fold. To bring people together through a symbolic hour-long event. To galvanise people into taking action beyond the hour. And to create an interconnected global community sharing the mutual goal of creating a sustainable future for the planet.”
Earth Hour has swept the globe, drawing together hundreds of millions of people in 152 countries and territories spanning every continent. Show your support this evening at 8:30 and turn out your lights.
