The Earth Hour Story

Earth Hour launched in Sydney in 2007, with 2.2 million people and 2,100 businesses participating in the ‘lights off’ event. Just one year later, Earth Hour became a global phenomenon with over 35 countries, and an estimated 50-100 million people participating.

2017 marks the 10th anniversary of Earth Hour as a global phenomenon with an expected, over 172 countries and over 7,000 cities and towns worldwide celebrating!

In Australia, Earth Hour is something that really brings our communities together, with 1 in every 4 Aussies taking part showing their support for a low pollution, clean energy future, one in which we can continue to enjoy the best of nature and our great Aussie outdoor lifestyle.

Earth Hour as a global movement has seen remarkable results..

  • In 2016, the world came together to bridge our differences in a landmark global agreement in Paris to tackle climate change
  • 3.4 million hectares of marine parks have been protected in Argentina
  • an Earth Hour Forest in Uganda has been established
  • a ban on plastic bags is happening in the Galapagos Islands, and
  • right now about 1 in 7 Aussie households have solar panels installed on their roofs.
