Earth Hour is an annual initiative of the international WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature). The initiative started in Sydney in 2007 as a small-scale action to draw attention to climate change. In the years since, it has grown into the world’s largest movement for the protection of nature. In addition to shutting down the lights, the nature organization encourages everyone to do something positive for nature for more than 60 minutes (hence the 60+ logo): for example, eat plant-based more often, recycle more, plant a tree, etc.
