Earth Hour 2009
The March 28, 2009 Earth Hour Event was the largest of its kind.
Millions of people world-wide cast their votes in support of the Earth,
urging world leaders to take action to fight global warming.
The results will be presented at the 2009 Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.
Find out how to get involved and let your voice be heard.
||Shared Earth Network invited everyone to turn off their lights for one hour from 8:30 - 9:30 pm local time on Saturday March 28! With your lights off for an hour you will create an opportunity to pray or meditate in your own faith tradition. This is one suggestion for a way that the Shared Earth Network can bring spiritual energy to the environmental advocacy work of Earth Hour. Another suggestion is to join the prayer chain on www.sharedearthnetwork.org and share prayers for Earth Hour. Surely, this can be transformational!
You will be joining millions of people who are making a global statement of concern about climate change and demonstrating a commitment to finding solutions. The Shared Earth Network has signed up for Earth Hour and encourages all our members to sign up as individuals. Go to www.earthhourus.org to sign up.
Earth Hour began in 2007 through the efforts of the World Wildlife Fund and the city of Sydney, Australia. In 2008, 35 countries and 400 cities participated. The goal for 2009 is 1,000 cities. We hope to share how many countries; cities and people participate in Earth Hour 2009 when we have the information.
