Earth Hour Blue
, an all encompassing, global crowdfunding initiative started by Earth Hour
- Brings together a worldwide community for an hour without power. The project is run as a branch of WWF and gave life to a vision to save our Great Barrier Reef and spark dialogue about the climate change movement.

- Encompassed 4 months of campaigning through media channels, including radio, banner advertising, posters and television segments encouraging households to switch off and tune in.

- Financially supported through crowdfunding, $56 million worth of donated media buying and generous contributions from their ambassadors and sponsors.

- Mainly aimed to engage the Australian government and media gatekeepers to the importance of Australia’s most important biodynamic ecosystem and third largest tourism revenue source.

- Pervasive media campaigns and strategic advertising, the not-for-profit project has tripled in size and budget each year from its inception in 2007.

- Began as a local campaign in the outskirts of Sydney now engages 163 countries turning off the lights on their most prominent landmarks, brings the backing of prolific celebrities and engages more than in the global movement against climate change.

Earth hour does not purport to be an energy reducing exercise, it is a symbolic movement to bring climate change onto the map.

So we made some educated guesses....
The movement has now spread to 163 countries who now turn off the lights of their major landmarks, including Syndey Harbour, in support of the project.

A candlelit display was also spelled out on Parliament House to bring political attention to the cause.

Recent abolition of the carbon tax shows climate change is becoming a part of the political agenda, but not making a positive change. That is up to us.

Community support is obvious, we just need to make more noise.
