Switch off and #Connect2Earth

An hour of darkness this Saturday 24 March will shine a light on the impacts of climate change to Australia’s biodiversity.

Held every year, Earth Hour asks people world-wide to turn off their lights between 8.30-9.30pm in a show of solidarity to protect the planet for future generations.

This year’s theme is #Connect2Earth, encouraging Australians to reconnect with their natural environment and join the global conversation on how climate change is affecting the natural world.

Council’s Sustainability Coordinator Mark Shorter said the theme was particularly pertinent for Eurobodalla.

“We live in such a beautiful part of the world where we can easily connect to the natural environment every day,” he said.

Mark said there were small changes everyone could make to reduce their impact.

“Simple things like switching off lights and power points when not in use, using energy and water-efficient appliances, installing solar power, buying local and driving less can make a big difference,” he said.

Launched by WWF-Australia in 2007, Earth Hour has become the world’s biggest grassroots environmental movement where landmarks and communities switch off their lights to show their support for a brighter future for the planet.

Eurobodalla Council participates annually, ensuring lights are switched off in Council buildings where possible. For more information visit
