Don't forget to join in Earth hour 2011 at 8.30pm Saturday 26 Marchâ€”an annual reminder of the need for practical daily action on global warming to ensure a future for our planet.
Earth Hour 2011 urges you to "Go Beyond the Hour" and identify ways to make permanent changes in your life that will benefit our planet.
If practical measures like those adopted in Sustainable Sydney 2030 were implemented in all of Australia's major cities, we could achieve 41 percent of the national emissions reduction target.
Governments at all levels must set bold greenhouse gas reduction targets or face dangerous climate change. The State and Federal Government must also urgently support action in cities, which make up two per cent of the earth's surface but account for 80 per cent of emissions.
