This Saturday 25th Marchlet’slight a candle andswitch off for Earth Hour 2023.
What is Earth Hour?
Every year on the last Saturday of March, individuals, households, communities, and businesses across the world switch off their lights for 60 mins as a gesture of solidarity and support for our planet’s future.
How Did it Start and What is the Impact?
The WWF initiated Earth Hour back in 2007 where it began as a simple lights-out event. More than 2.2 million individuals and 2000 businesses turned off their lights to show their support.
Today it has extended far wider. In many countries the event has influenced climate policies, successfully pushed for bans on plastics, lead to global tree-planting events, built awareness and inspired people to switch to more sustainable lifestyles, and lead to the installation of solar power in many communities.
How Can I Participate?
The simplest way to get involved in Earth Hour 2023 is to join others in turning off your lights at the time listed below:
Brisbane (QLD) 8:30pm – 9:30pm
