About Earth Hour

Earth Hour was born in Sydney, Australia, in 2007, as an idea that could unite people and deliver a firm message to the then climate-sceptic government that climate change was an issue Australians cared about. The hour was seen as a moment where people could unite to protect the planet regardless of age, gender, culture or religion.

Over the last 10 years, Earth Hour has proved its massive environmental impact on millions of people, businesses, and organizations around the globe. Earth Hour 2017 took place on Saturday, 25 March 2017 at 20:30 (local time).

About Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts

Le Méridien, the Paris-born hotel brand currently represented by nearly 100 properties in more than 40 countries, was acquired by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.

Through creation of the LM100 artist community, Le Méridien has transformed numerous guest touch points, thus bringing unique, interactive and curated experiences to its guests. Plans call for dynamic expansion of Le Méridien Hotels and Resorts within the next five years, concentrating on markets in Asia-Pacific and the Americas.
