A common space for harmonic peacemakers
Be part of the world's largest environmental movement
Earth Hour is the world’s largest grassroots movement for climate change action. Millions of people in over 180 countries take part in Earth Hour by switching off their lights as a symbolic gesture to show that our planet needs stronger action on climate change.
On Saturday, 24th March 2018, switch off for Earth Hour. Switch off for the future of our planet.
Join the future by changing the way you live
Australians consume a lot more per person than in many other countries. The food, energy and water we use, the timber and plastics that we depend upon – everything we do uses natural resources and produces waste. The measure of this impact on the environment is called our ecological footprint.
Australia's ecological footprint is gigantic. In fact, if the rest of the world lived like we did, we’d need over three planets to meet our total demands on nature. It's a frightening figure, especially when you consider that over-consumption is a major contributor to global warming and climate change.
However, while no-one can do everything, everyone can do something. Making simple changes in our daily lives – at home, in our shopping choices and even how we travel – can reduce your carbon footprint and save you money too.
