This #EarthHour, all Australians are called upon to sign up to switch off and join a worldwide community of millions taking #TimeOutForNature. Register here to switch off now. The event will take place on Saturday 25 March 2023 from 8.30pm to 9.30pm. Earth Hour has gained millions of supporters in 190 countries and territories and more than 7000 cities. It's a community-led movement focused on raising awareness of the impacts of climate change and the importance of biodiversity.
This year, Earth Hour is highlighting how we can switch off and take #TimeOutForNature. Whether it's 60 seconds, 60 minutes or beyond the hour, participants are encouraged to make time to reflect on the incredible benefits that nature provides. As nature, too, needs a time out. We need to gather together as a worldwide community to act with urgency to reverse the loss of nature and combat climate change by 2030. Sign up and pledge to support greater action on climate change and nature loss, and you can do this in many many small ways in your everyday life. Live in awareness and teach the future generation to live with consciousness for the survival of our future.
Historically, Earth Hour has focused on the climate crisis, but more recently Earth Hour has strived to also bring the pressing issue of nature loss to the fore. The aim is to create an unstoppable movement for nature. This is a movement that recognises the role of individuals in creating solutions to the planet's most pressing environmental challenges and harnesses the collective power of its millions of supporters to drive change. WWF is one of the world's largest and most respected independent conservation organisations, with over 5 million supporters and a global network active in over 100 countries. Its mission is to stop the degradation of the earth's natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by conserving the world's biological diversity, ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.
