Earth Hour: shifting from a moment to a movement

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 participating, and an estimated 50-100 million people.

In 2014, Earth Hour was celebrated in over 162 countries and over 7000 cities and towns worldwide. The symbolic hour has grown into the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, with beyond the hour projects and initiatives happening throughout the year.

This year Earth Australia is shifting from a moment to a movement, a nation-wide grassroots movement of year-round action on climate change. In 2014, Earth Hour Australia shone the spotlight on the reality of climate change and how it is affecting one of Australia’s most loved natural icons; the Great Barrier Reef.
