Lights out--Earth Hour 2009!

Tonight's the night! All over the world, at 8:30 pm, wherever they are, people are turning off their lights for 60 minutes.

Why? We're showing in the most dramatic way possible our support for protecting the Earth.



One person committed to reducing energy consumption can make a difference, but millions working together can change the world.

Earth Hour 2009



We're dimming the Earth's artificial lights for one hour around the globe. Watch as it happened last year and see how beautiful darkness can be:
