Earth Hour

Earth Hour logo

In its first year in 2007, 2.2 million Sydneysiders took part in Earth Hour and switched off their lights to show the world that a solution to the threat of global warming is possible through collective action. Since then, Earth Hour has grown into one of the most effective climate change campaigns in history, with 128 countries and territories taking part.

Communities, businesses and governments are invited to switch off their lights and send a powerful global message about the need to take action on climate change. Reducing energy consumption by switching off non-essential lighting will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  

In support of Earth Hour each year, Whitehorse City Council turns off all non-essential lighting in Council-owned buildings and encourages local businesses and the community to do the same.
