31 March 2007 at 7.30pm is Earth Hour in Sydney. Earth hour is an initiative of the Sydney Morning Herald and the World Wildlife Fund, designed to show that individuals can make a difference and it is possible to take action on global warming.
Companies, government departments, individuals and families are being asked to turn off their lights for just one hour. It's a simple action aimed at sending the message that we care about the future of the planet.
Earth Hour is the launch of a 12 month campaign aiming to reduce Sydney's greenhouse gas emissions by 5%. This could be achieved if all businesses and households turned off unused lights and appliances on standby.
One hour without lighting, too easy, what excuse has anyone got for not taking part!
