Millions of people around the world, from Australia to Uzbekistan, Indonesia to Canada "turned out" for this global event, and San Francisco was among the cities leading the way.
From individual homes to major landmarks, schools to city buildings, San Franciscans spoke with one voice and made it clear that the time is now to reduce our energy consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions and make an ongoing, worldwide commitment to fight climate change.
World Wildlife Fund is proud to have had the involvement and support of so many public officials, famous places, individuals and families, and major corporations – all of whom helped make Earth Hour a global success.
The impact of this call for change will be felt worldwide.
