What is #Connect2Earth?

#Connect2Earth is a challenge to switch off during Earth Hour and reconnect with the natural environment.

WWF is urging Australians to participate in Earth Hour 2019 and switch off their lights for one hour to show their support for Australia to get back on track to meeting its international climate change commitments.

WWF began Earth Hour in Sydney in 2007 and each year thousands of Australians and businesses show their commitment to our environment by turning off their lights.

Last year, a record 18,000 landmarks in 7,000 cities around the world participated as part of their activities to call for action to reduce the causes of climate change.

From the national treasure of the Great Barrier Reef, to our iconic koala in the forest, to the much-loved penguins of Antarctica – our unique biodiversity, meaning the wildlife and the natural places we love, face a perilous future if we don’t step up to protect our planet (and our home!) 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.
