This Saturday night at 8.30pm, cities all around the world will turn their lights off for one hour and turn their attention to planet Earth. Beginning in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour has rapidly become a global movement where hundreds of millions of people across the globe come together to demand greater action on climate change. Since its introduction 11 years ago, the event had grown to unite over 7,000 cities and towns across 187 countries and territories making Earth Hour, a staple of environmental awareness for the future of our planet.
Saturday 28th of March saw Earth Hour 2015 - a global event where everyone is encouraged to switch off their lights from 8:30pm to 9:30pm in the worlds largest grassroots movement for the environment. The Ecotourism Australia team participated by switching off their homes for the hour!
