In light of the coronavirus crisis, WWF-Australia and Earth Hour are committed to doing everything we can to flatten the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19. But social distancing doesn’t mean losing social connection. So we’ve decided to celebrate Earth Hour a little differently this year and take it unplugged and online. 


Since 2007, Earth Hour has been embraced by communities large and small. Are you representing a community, organisation, landmark or council? This year, we invite you to #SwitchOff at 8.30pm on Saturday 28 March 2020.

Register your participation in Earth Hour, and then join hundreds of communities, organisations, landmarks and councils that want to see stronger action on climate change by sending us your logo to appear on the pledge wall below.


There are many ways your community can get involved in Earth Hour:

Promise for the planet

We are joining hundreds of businesses across Australia to #SwitchOff for Earth Hour 2020 for the future of our planet. We proudly stand as part of a community that will raise its voice for nature to see stronger action on climate change.

Business as usual isn’t enough. We need to accelerate Australia’s efforts to limit the dangerous impact of climate change and transition to a zero-carbon economy. We intend to be part of the solution to ensure that the natural resources and ecosystems that underpin our organisation are used sustainably.

We pledge our support for stronger climate action so that Australia can meet its commitments made at the 2015 Paris Agreement. Together we will help protect the planet for future generations.
