Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement uniting people to protect the planet, and is organised by WWF. Engaging a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement.
Since its maiden inception in 2008, the Commodore’s Cup Regatta, was earlier envisioned to promote the country as a preferred sailing destination in Southeast Asia. Since then, CCR has become part of the Asian Yachting Circuit with the winner eligible to earn points for “Yachtsman of the Year.”
The International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is the world's largest volunteer effort for ocean's health. Held every third Saturday of September of each year, thousands and thousands of volunteers from around the globe participate, clearing tons of trash from coastlines, rivers and lakes and recording every piece of trash collected. From 12 sites along the Texas coast, ICC grew to more than 6,000 sites in more than 100 countries. With the help of the more than 9 million volunteers, over 145 million pounds of debris were removed in just under three decades.
