Why Get Involved?
There are a multitude of things that divide people: gender, nationality, race, political and religious beliefs to name a few. But when it comes to fighting climate change, it doesn’t matter who we are or where we’re from – we’re all on the same team.
That’s important to understand, because to combat an issue as big as climate change, the planet needs us all. And the more people that work together, the less daunting that task will become..
History of Earth Hour
Earth Hour is organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. It showed that everyone, from children to CEOs and politicians, has the power to change the world we live in.
In 2008, the plan was to spread Earth Hour to the rest of Australia but there was an appetite to expand the movement beyond that country’s borders. Canada’s own City of Toronto was the first to sign up and it wasn’t long before 35 countries and almost 400 cities and towns followed suit. It said something compelling to the world: that the climate challenges facing our planet are so significant that change needs to be global.
