WWF Earth Hour brings together millions of people in a call to action on climate change, by simply switching off their lights for one hour on a Saturday evening each March.
Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia with 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses. In just 3 years, this grew to a record 128 countries in a global display in which iconic buildings across Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas descended into darkness.
Earth Hour is organised by WWF, one of the world's leading independent conservation organisations. Their mission is to stop the degradation of the Earth's natural environment.
Last year, our camps throughout Tanzania, Zambia, Uganda and Botswana held candlelight dinners, and staff from our Australia office took part in the Future Spark event to generate electricity to power the Earth Hour concert.
Show your support for Earth Hour 2011 and join one billion people around the world who will be switching off their lights for one hour on Saturday 26 March from 8:30pm (local time).
I think anyone, from any background, with any level of expectation, would love the Alila. This is a special place and we were very much put at our ease and made to feel at home.
