With the start of Autumn and March also starts the count down to Earth Hour 2017 on the Gold Coast.
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 from 8.30pm until 9.30pm local time to show their support for a brighter future for the planet.
Now celebrated in over 170 countries and over 7000 cities, Earth Hour has one mission: to unite people to protect the planet and show they care about its future.
On Saturday March 25, we are calling on earth loving Aussies from all walks of life to switch off their lights between 8:30pm and 9.30pm as a symbol of support for a low pollution, clean energy future for all generations.
There are plenty of ways to get involved:
– Join an Earth Hour event, or host one yourselves! You can search for a local community event or register one near you at www.earthhour.org.au/
– Tell us you’re switching off your lights for the future of our planet! Register on earthhour.org.au and upload a picture to our Earth Hour Wall.www.earthhour.org.au/wall
