Earth Hour 2011

At 8.30pm on Saturday 26 March 2011, lights will switch off around the globe for Earth Hour and people will commit to actions that go beyond the hour.

Flick off the lights when you leave every day this week and come Saturday, you'll be in peak form for Earth Hour.

Each year, Townsville City Council participates in the World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour, joining tens of millions of concerned citizens and corporations in calling for action to save our planet for future generations.

Townsville City Council is proud to make a statement about the fight against climate change, and we encourage all our employees and members of the community to participate each year by turning off their lights.

In 2008, more than 50 million people in 400 cities around the world took part in Earth Hour. The lights went out at Sydney’s Opera House, Rome’s Coliseum, the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge. Even the Google homepage went dark for the day.

In 2009, over 4,000 cities in 88 countries around the world went dark fpr Earth Hour, and in 2010, a record 128 countries took part for climate change!
