From 2012 and beyond, Earth Hour is harnessing the new digital frontier by using social technology to connect humanity to save the planet. Andy says Earth Hour is owned by its participants, from a six-year-old in a class room to a political leader fighting for a clean energy future. For the first time in history, it is possible for people from all over the world to connect and unite behind a common cause.
