Vote with Your Light Switch

We are forever being told that if we each do a little, we can achieve a lot. Here is a chance to do very little and make a massive impact.

On SATURDAY 28th March you can join Earth Hour. Vote for the fight against global warming and switch off a light for one hour. Unlike other campaigns where we have been asked to switch off lots of things all evening - this is painless.

Earth Hour has been transformed, this year, into a global election. 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.

It all started in Sydney during 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour (Earth 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.

This year it is VOTE EARTH. More details can be found on their website,

Join in by switching off your lights for one hour on Saturday, March 28th, 8.30 - 9.30 pm.
