EARTH HOUR 2012 – Dare to save the Planet


We only have one planet.  You can help protect it. Participate in the world’s largest single campaign for the planet: Earth Hour. It starts by turning off your lights for an hour at 8:30 pm on March 31, 2012 in a collective display of commitment to a better future for the planet.

It may not seem much of a sacrifice to focus for one hour on the impact we have on our future, but the possibility for attitude change, moving globally, like a ‘virus’ , could be breathtaking.

UNESCO Director-General, Irina Bokova, has delivered a powerful message to participants across the globe, in the lead up to Earth Hour this Saturday March 31, 8.30pm – 9.30pm. Bokova says the Earth Hour campaign is an opportunity to show commitment and also a moment for reflection on the planet.

“This campaign is an opportunity to raise awareness about climate change and our responsibility for tackling its root causes. It is also a powerful sign of our commitment to a sustainable planet and to sustainable energy for all.

“This commitment stretches across the whole planet including humanity’s most precious places. Many of these iconic buildings, monuments and places are lit up at night. People look to them as sources of identity, as touchstones of belonging and meaning. Turning lights off on Angkor, the Acropolis or the Sydney Opera House among others is a strong symbol. A symbol to help us see the world differently.” See the full message here
