ABOUT EARTH HOUR

Earth Hour has done a lot to raise awareness of climate change issues. But there’s more to it than switching off lights for one hour once a year. It’s all about giving people a voice on the future of our planet, and the chance to send a message of hope to world leaders.

Earth Hour: A global vote for Earth

Since 2007, Earth Hour has gained worldwide support for positive action against global warming. It all began with 2.2 million people in one city using their light switches to have their say. By March 2009, hundreds of millions of people in over 4,000 cities in 88 countries officially switched off to vote for Earth.

This monumental swell of support for the environment has been four years in the making. And it’s all building towards one decisive moment in history – the Copenhagen climate summit, where world leaders will meet to discuss new ways of dealing with climate change.

Every single person who took part in Earth Hour this year helped form a mandate to influence the climate summit. And as people continue to show their support by voting for Earth in the lead up to Copenhagen, the mandate will grow even stronger.

Earth Hour Copenhagen

On the eve of the summit, the full force of Vote Earth will be seen by the world in an historical Earth Hour event. At 7pm on 16 December 2009, the people of Copenhagen will unite in darkness in a show of support for a brighter future. They will be ambassadors for the 6.7 billion citizens of Earth calling positive action on climate change.
