Earth Hour has been a symbolic act of solidarity for more than ten years as people symbolically ‘switch off’ for 60 minutes to show that they care about the earth’s future.

COVID-19 has forced Earth Hour to go digital this year, with the event going to live stream showcasing locals artists including: Jack River, Polish Club, Bobby Alu, Ella Haber, Dulcie and Alice Skye, with more guests to be announced.

The event will be hosted by journalist Patrick Abboud and landmarks around the country will be switching off including: Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Luna Park, The Wheel of Brisbane, Melbourne Star Observation Wheel and The Bell Tower in Perth as well as many more internationally.

To find out more, head to the Earth Hour website.
