Earth Hour

Earth Hour is upon us! Together, we have grown the movement in over 120 countries and all 50 states to include millions of people and thousands of communities and landmarks. Tomorrow night at 8:30pm local time, the world will unite in the largest mass action in history to call for action on climate change. We’re turning off for Earth Hour because we care about our planet and our future. We are ready to create a cleaner, safer, more secure future.

You can watch a slideshow of the highlights tomorrow as Earth Hour sweeps across the globe at EarthHour.org. More than 1200 landmarks including the Sydney Opera House, Bird’s Nest Stadium, Great Pyramids, Eiffel Tower, Niagara Falls, Mount Rushmore, and the Golden Gate bridge will all be going dark with us!


When it’s your turn to turn out the lights, be sure to share your experience with the world. Tag your tweets with #EarthHour and add your voice to the global call for action on climate change. You can follow the global conversation in real-time here.

We need your help to capture history in the making with photos and video. Once Earth Hour starts, this button will be available on earthhour.org to upload your photos. Please tag your photos with Earth Hour, Earth Hour 2010 and the name of the city and country where the photo was taken so they can be added to the global Flickr group. Any videos you take can be uploaded to YouTube and added to the Earth Hour Global group.

This will be a night worth remembering, the night the world comes together to make the switch to a low carbon economy that protects us from dangerous climate change. Tomorrow we unite to change the world.

Thank you for all your support. Meet you in the dark!
