EARTH HOUR: Saturday, March 28, 8:30-9:30pm
VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet.
Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour.
In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome???s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.
For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote ??? Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming.
WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.
This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.
