EARTH HOUR started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia with 2.2 million homes and businesses turning their lights off for one whole hour. Only a year later and this event had become a global sustainability movement with up to 100 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.
Professional BlackBook Network proudly supported this innitiative by posting banners in our website and promoting Earth Hour events locally in some cities. For next year we are planning to play a more active role encouraging all our members to participate.
