Use your power at earthhour.org
Earth Hour has made a massive impact around the world with your help.
This year, we are calling for your voice, your actions and your power to make an even greater one. In February 2014, we will be unleashing Earth Hour Blue; a digital platform that gives you a unique opportunity to use your power, in a way you’ve not done before.
This revolutionary new platform will allow you to fund, support and share active environmental and social projects that deliver tangible outcomes for our planet. The power of the crowd is no longer in doubt. Are you ready to use your power?
The first #EarthHour 2014 Video! Today is 100 days from Earth Hour, which will be held on March 29, 8:30PM next year. In 55 days we’ll be launching Earth Hour Blue, where you’ll be able to use #YourPower. Now we’ve built Earth Hour, let’s use it!
Today marks the date we’ve used the planet’s “nature’s resource” budget for the entire year. Humanity is currently using natural resources faster than the Earth can replenish them.
Overshoot Day is an indication that now is the time to make a change. Small actions can make a big difference. We each play an important part when in comes to living within our ecological limits to help reverse the trend: http://wwf.to/oShoot2013
The Vote Earth campaign artwork was created by Shepard Fairey, the artist who created the iconic imagery for Barack Obama in the last US Presidential Election. Vote Earth was the world’s first global election, an election between earth and global warming. The target was one billion votes for earth, because our planet is worth saving.
Earth Hour’s Vote Earth launches The People’s Orb, a shimmering silver sphere encasing a 350 gigabyte hard drive with video, images and documents representing the hundreds of millions of people who voted Earth to call for action on climate change by switching off their lights for Earth Hour 2009. A tangible representation of the voice of the world’s people, The People’s Orb relays from Sydney to the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark in the care of a variety of custodians ranging from former heads of state to iconic rock stars. The People’s Orb, is entrusted to UN Chef de Cabinet, Vijay Nambiar to be presented to world leaders. The People’s Orb takes centre stage in the plenary on the final day of the conference, in front of President of the United States, Barack Obama, Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, COP President and Climate Minister Connie Hedegaard and over 100 heads of state.
