Hundreds of millions of people. Spider-Man as Earth Hour’s first ever Superhero ambassador
Earth Hour celebrated in Space, with Russian cosmonaut Roman Romanenko and astronaut Chris Hadfield sending messages from the International Space Station.
More than 200,000 individuals accepted an ‘I Will If You Will’ challenge. Celebrities got involved to inspire action beyond the hour including Kumi Naidoo (Greenpeace) and Miranda Kerr.
This was the first Earth Hour to go beyond the hour. Supporters were challenged to go the extra mile by taking tangible action to make a difference for the planet.
3 months after the failure of COP15 in Copenhagen, Earth Hour succeeded in being the global call to action to stand up, take control and lead the journey towards a sustainable future.
The Vote Earth Campaign artwork was created by Shepard Fairey, the artist who created the iconic imagery for Barack Obama in the US Presidential Elections. Vote Earth was the first global election between Earth and global warming.
At 8pm on the 29 March 2008, millions of people in some of the world's major cities used the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming.
The inaugural Earth Hour was held in Sydney, Australia.
