Join the movement for a renewables future.


This year, we want schools to make the #SwitchforNature! We’ve got lots of exciting resources we will share with you this Earth Hour to help your school celebrate in the weeks leading up to Earth Hour, which is on Saturday 27 March.


Free Earth Hour lesson plans and resources


WWF-Australia has partnered with Cool Australia to develop free, downloadable lesson plans and resources to help bring Earth Hour into your classroom.


These curriculum-aligned resources introduce and explore important environmental topics like climate change, support learning online and at school, and provide units suitable for Early Learning, Primary and Secondary students.

Professional Development Course

WWF-Australia and Cool Australia have also worked together to develop an accredited professional development course for teachers. This course will help inspire your students to feel optimistic about their future by investigating how animals adapt to climate change. You’ll discover how to teach curriculum-aligned lessons using WWF-Australia’s Earth Hour. You’ll build your confidence to teach about climate change in geography and science by learning:

  • How others teach about climate change in their curriculum.
  • How to explore climate change by focusing on animals.
  • The basics of climate science such as weather, global warming and climate change.
  • How to teach about climate change and care for students’ mental health.
  • Where to find teaching resources and lesson plans.
