Every year hundreds of millions of people around the world in more than 7,000 cities in over 180 countries take part in this amazing global conservation movement. People do a wide range of things around the hour to show they care about our planet’s future. Millions choose to mark Earth Hour by going ‘lights out’ for 60 minutes at 8.30pm – a symbolic show of solidarity.
From the national treasure of the Great Barrier Reef, to our iconic koala, our wildlife and the natural places we love face a perilous future if we don’t step up to protect our planet from the impacts of climate change.
So this Earth Hour, it’s easy for all Australians to show they care: just switch off and #Connect2Earth and you will amplify the national conversation on climate change.
On Saturday, March 30 2019 at 8.30pm, Stockland will join over 7,000 cities and 180 countries in what has become one of the largest global movements for climate change action. We will be turning off all non-essential lighting for one hour to show support for action against climate change.
Be sure to make this year's event memorable by trying one of our five family-friendly Earth Hour activities for kids.
