Turn Off the Lights For Earth Hour 2009 on March 2009

Earth Hour is a global climate change initiative by WWF. Governments, business and individuals turn of their lights for an hour to support action on climate change.

Earth Hour is symbolic event where people around the world are encouraged to turn off their lights for one hour to show support for action on climate change. Millions of people around the globe turning off our lights together demonstrates that individual efforts, when taken together, add up make a big difference and can be as easy as a flick of a switch.

Earth Hour is a WWF event and it began in Sydney, Australia in 2007. It was such a huge success that in 2008, WWF decided to make Earth Hour a global event and its been growing ever since. In 2008, millions of people in hundreds of cities in more than 30 countries turned off their lights for Earth Hour.

WWF created Earth Hour to help show people how they can be a part of the climate solution and use that participation to show government that people are taking action for the planet and want that same leadership from local and national governments.

Through Earth Hour WWF can mobilize millions of people as a global cry that action is needed now to stop the climate crisis.

As an international conservation organization WWF is uniquely positioned to tackle climate change because we can work with all the necessary players - individuals, business and government - to achieve results.

Why Everyone must be participate?
Climate change is the most urgent environmental issue facing our planet and every one of us has a role to play to help stop it. Earth Hour is an easy and powerful way to send a message that you care about your planet and want to be part of the climate solution. More importantly, it sends a very powerful message to government and world leaders that people want the right policies and regulations put in place that can achieve the meaningful emission reductions necessary to help fight climate change.

  1. The Center for Media Research has released a study by Vertical Response that shows just where many of these ‘Main Street’ players are going with their online dollars. The big winners: e-mail and social media. With only 3.8% of small business folks NOT planning on using e-mail marketing and with social media carrying the perception of being free (which they so rudely discover it is far from free) this should make some in the banner and search crowd a little wary.
