THE EARTH HOUR 2015 REPORT
Agriculture and food production are highly vulnerable to changes in climate variability, seasonal shifts, and rainfall patterns caused by climate change. Experts predict that changes in temperature, rainfall and seasonal trends will impact production of staples and crops like corn, beans, cocoa, and even coffee, which require certain conditions for cultivation. In 2015, WWF and Earth Hour teams around the world drove awareness on the impact of climate change on agriculture and how consumers, businesses and communities can each take action. From spreading awareness on consuming wisely to sustainable dinners on the night of Earth Hour (the UK, Finland and France) and creating the world’s first ever Earth Hour recipe book Planet to Plate with recipes by 52 celebrity chefs in Australia, sustainable food and agriculture was a major theme for Earth Hour 2015.
