Earth Hour 2010

National Manager

The largest grassroots environmental movement in the world!

Earth Hour is a global environmental action phenomenon, which started in Sydney in 2007. It was in its fourth year when I came onboard and the challenge lay ahead, with a bigger Call to Action besides the symbolic gesture of switching off the lights for one hour and operating on a reduced budget and limited staff

We created the campaign tag line, Earth Hour, Every Hour, to encourage a behavioural shift in our daily lives. The focus was on community empowerment and building a national movement where individuals, families, schools, companies, local councils and state governments took action of “Lights Out” in all major capital cities to make a global statement on climate change. It was one of the most successful campaigns ever run.

  • Worked with Leo Burnett Sydney, Starcom Media, Fairfax Media, Austereo and Adshell for high media placement value in print, digital and outdoor advertising, radio and TV.
  • Negotiated corporate partnership with clothing company FACTORIE as the official T-shirt manufacturer and retailer for Earth Hour Australia 2010 with 20% of each T-shirt sold donated to WWF-Australia.
  • Organised the VIP and community launch events at Goat Island in collaboration with National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) to witness “Lights Out” and celebrate Earth Hour 2010.
