What began in Sydney a few years back as a local awareness raising effort of the World Wildlife Fund, has turned into a global phenomenon, capturing the imagination of politicians, citizens and celebrities. Earth Hour now takes place at 8:30pm on Saturday, March 26 with 50 million people participating in more than 35 countries.
There are plenty of ways to take action that go Beyond Earth Hour. But it starts by turning off your lights. It starts by enlisting the support of your company (the SAP office in North Sydney will be candle powered from 8:30pm).
And it starts by committing a small amount of time this Saturday evening. Do it!
