Learn more about Earth Hour and how you can make a difference!
Earth Hour started in 2007 in
when 2.2 million
individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one
hour. The grassroots movement to raise awareness for the Earth has been growing ever since. On March 27, 2010, Earth Hour set a
record when 4,500 cities in 128 countries joined the global display of climate
action. Iconic buildings and landmarks from all over the world such as
the Sydney, Australia, Golden Gate Bridge, the Eiffel Tower, and switched
off. People from all walks of life across the world turned off their
lights and came together in celebration of the one thing we all have in common
– our planet. In 2013, participation in Earth Hour grew to include more than
7,001 cities and towns in 154 countries and territories across all seven continents. Buckingham Palace
Spider-Man is the first Superhero Ambassador for Earth Hour.
