Earth Hour – March 23rd 2013

What is Earth Hour?

With 152 countries officially taking part in 2012, Earth Hour is a WWF (World Wide Fund For Nature) initiative which has grown into the world’s largest community-driven campaign for the planet.

At the centre of the campaign is the symbolic collective action of switching off the lights. Through this action, individuals, businesses and communities join a visible statement of commitment to act for a more sustainable future. Participation remains a powerful reminder to our political leaders that there is ongoing concern and demand for the government to act on climate change.

In 2013, we’re asking Australians to make the switch to renewable power and be part of a clean energy future.

When does Earth Hour take place?

The next Earth Hour will be held on Saturday 23 March 2013 between 8.30pm and 9.30pm in your local time zone.

    Hello to all and especially those with Upper Primary students.
    In celebration of Earth Hour, there is an activity on the Upper Primary Moodle page for students to learn more about the importance of Earth Hour and a forum to share your ideas. Upper Primary teachers would love to have all students do this assignment and send us their thoughts, photos and experiences from Earth Hour.
    Lights out,
    Karen Jaworski-Neilson
