Earth hour 2008 saw lights turned off for an hour in a message which was symbolic but a bit more than that – the message was that, together, we can make a difference.
Earth hour occurred last year in Sydney, Australia, on March 31 2007.
In 2007, it was one city, hoping to set an example and catch the attention of the rest of the world. And so “Earth Hour” was born.
Earth hour went global in 2008, spanning 35 countries and over 350 cities. Even Antarctica participated.
Earth hour 2009 occurred on March 28 at 8:30 pm. Although that’s a bit too recent for any videos to have been produced on the event, it will definitely be interesting to see how this evolves in years to come. Alanis Morissett has jumped on board as well, with her own very unique PSA about the worlds “biggest turn-off.”
