Earth Hour 2018
Starting as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney in 2007, WWF’s Earth Hour has grown to become the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, inspiring individuals, communities, businesses and organizations in more than 180 countries and territories to take tangible climate action for over a decade. Today, as accelerating climate change and staggering biodiversity loss threaten the planet, we want to leverage the momentum and energy of the Earth Hour movement to connect people to Earth.
Earth Hour 2018 is on Saturday 24 March from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in your local timezone. Different countries are organizing events according to environmental issues that they feel are most relevant to them. Visit www.earthhour.org to see what’s happening in locations around the world.
Earth Hour has always been about the power of individuals to be a part of global conversations and solutions for our planet. Connect2Earth is a call for people worldwide to connect with the environmental issues and causes that they personally care about. This Earth Hour, we invite people around the world to ‘spark’ never-before conversations on the loss of nature around them. Connect2Earth.org is a platform to capture global conversations around biodiversity, for people to connect to each other and drive global awareness and action on biodiversity. It is the first step toward creating the global momentum we need to steer the planet away from a path of staggering biodiversity or nature loss.
