For the past three years, Earth Hour has used a free community license of Confluence to galvanize people, cities and countries to turn off their lights for one hour in support of saving our planet from the effects of global warming.
From Earth Hour:
On March 28th, 2009 at 8:30pm local time, over a billion people will be switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.
In preparation for Earth Hour 2009, several Atlassians with the help of the Atlassian Foundation took an active role in helping Earth Hour revamp their wiki.
Next week, Atlassian technical writer, Andrew Lui, will be blogging in more detail about how we became involved with Earth Hour along with the changes and improvements Atlassian made to Earth Hour’s wiki.
