About “Earth Hour”
Earth Hour is a WWF campaign that began in 2007 in Sydney, Australia as a symbolic gesture in support of the fight against climate change. Ten years on, it has become the largest environmental mobilisation campaign in history. It is a mass demonstration of the feelings of millions of people who are calling for everyone to commit to addressing climate change, the greatest environmental threat facing us.
