“Last year's Earth Hour made history as the world’s largest ever voluntary action with people, businesses and governments in 128 countries across every continent coming together to celebrate a commitment to the one thing that unites us all – the planet”.
This year’s Earth Hour is expected to be even more successful! The World Wildlife Federation, who sponsors the event, are upping the ante this year by challenging everyone worldwide to not only get involved for Earth Hour, but to go above and beyond this single event by speaking out and taking action against climate change.
When is Earth Hour and what the heck do I do?
It begins at 8.30pm on 26 March (that's tomorrow!), when millions worldwide will turn off their lights for one full hour.
So take that first leap, go on - I promise it will be really easy! One quick flick of a switch and you'll join millions in creating more awareness on climate change.
