"The phenomenal thing about Earth Hour is the changes it has inspired people to make in their every-day lives," said WWF-Australia CEO Dermot O'Gorman.
“It is not about one hour of darkness; it is about a lifetime of sustainability. Australians continue to show leadership on this important issue, therefore we look forward to seeing some ofAustralia's best examples of people going beyond the hour.
We know that to create a sustainable planet, we all need to play our small part."
