Earth Hour 2022 – Switch off to join the future and be part of the world’s largest environmental movement.
Switch off and #ShapeOurFuture this Earth Hour at 8.30 pm local time, Saturday 26 March 2022.
Earth Hour has always been for everyone. Every year, the hour of no power turns individuals, schools, businesses and communities into a millions-strong movement, and it’s never been a more important time to make the switch.
This Earth Hour, they’re calling on Australians everywhere to sign up to switch off – it’s never been more critical to come together to protect our world than at this moment. Climate change is having an impact on our iconic country right now, with floods impacting parts of Queensland and NSW. Our thoughts are with communities impacted by the floods.
We still have time to make a difference for the planet we call home. Whether you’re an individual, school, business or community, we all have the power to Shape Our Future.
Simple switches you make in your daily life can help our planet.
- Switch to solar power
- Switch your ride
- Or just #SwitchOff your lights for Earth Hour to show your support for Australia becoming a renewables powerhouse.
#ShapeOurFuture for Earth Hour 2022
About Earth Hour:
Earth Hour is the world’s largest grassroots movement for climate change action. Millions of people in over 180 countries take part in Earth Hour by switching off their lights as a symbolic gesture to show that our planet needs stronger action on climate change. Earth Hour has come a long way. What started as an Aussie grassroots movement has grown the world’s biggest movement for climate change.
Our actions on climate change will shape the future for our children. Since they were born, our children have been taught to be active recyclers, aware of renewable power alternatives, and informed about the effects of pollution on our planet. They know more about climate change than any other generation. And they have extraordinary views on what they want for their planet. Switch off for the future of our planet.

Some family games to play during Earth Hour:
- Freaky Faces – make sure you’ve got a torch; sit in a circle, and using a torch, see who can make the scariest face!
- Scare Bear – stand in a circle, someone is ‘in’, everyone else turns their backs to the person who’s in so they are facing out. The person who’s in has to try and scare the other people, one at a time, and the person who screams the loudest loses.
- Hide and Sneak – decide who’s in. That person counts to 20 with their eyes shut and everyone else hides. While the person who is in looks around the house, the people hiding have to sneak to a different spot. If they get caught they have to help look for the others. Everybody has to sneak at least once. The first person to get caught loses and is the next person to be ‘in’.
- Ready, set…sardines – it’s the reverse of hide and seek. The person who’s ‘in’ has to go and hide while everybody else counts to 20 with their eyes shut. Then everyone goes in search of the hider. Once the hider is found, each person who finds them must squeeze like a sardine into the same hiding spot, being careful not to make any noise. The first person to find the hider is the next person to be ‘in’.
- A shadow puppet show – Find a blank wall or set up a white sheet with some candles or torches behind. The kids can practice their shadow puppet hands and use sticks/leaves, etc, and make up stories that they know. Go online before the night begins to get some instructions on how to do shadow puppets.
