Launched in 2007 with a single event in Sydney, Earth Hour is now being organized around the world to raise awareness of climate change, considering the last four years have been the hottest ever recorded. This world event, which also aims to protect nature, does happen in French Polynesia too. The idea is to raise awareness of our energy consumption which is far too important compared to the planet resources. During Earth Hour, turn off your lights for one hour (between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm Tahiti local time). This event is also an opportunity for concerts, exhibitions, performances … all devoted to the environment.
