60 Earth Hour

Have you registered yourself for the 60 earth hour? I just registered before posting this blog. This is my personal page at 60 Earth Hour. Click and register.

What is 60 earth hour?

It is a program (campaign) for saving energy consumption. It started as a massive collective effort started in Sydney in 2007 whereby 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour - Earth hour. The effort saved Sydney's consumption by 10.2% for one hour. It took place on 31st March 2007.

The campaign started with a question: How can we inspire people to take action on climate change? and the answer was; Ask the people of Sydney to turn off their lights for one hour.

With Sydney icons like the Harbour Bridge and Opera House turning their lights off, and unique events such as weddings by candlelight, the world took notice. Inspired by the collective effort of millions of Sydneysiders, many major global cities are joining Earth Hour in 2008, turning a symbolic event into a global movement.

Originating in Sydney in 2007, the Earth Hour campaign has now gained global attention. As a result, on 8pm March 29, 2008 millions of people in some of the world’s major capital cities will unite and switch off for Earth Hour.

By registering I am part of making Earth Hour 2008 a huge, global success because every single light makes a statement and makes a difference.
