Background

 

Every year, millions of people around the world join the Earth Hour movement and switch off their lights for one hour to show support for protecting our planet and stopping climate change. This year, Earth Hour is at 8:30 p.m. your local time on Saturday, March 24.

Earth Hour 2018 comes at a critical moment in the fight against climate change. After the United States announced its intent to withdraw from the Paris Agreement - the world’s first truly global plan to address climate change - more than 2,600 leaders across America’s state houses, city halls, board rooms, faith organizations, and college campuses stepped up to say they are still committed to meeting America’s climate goals.

Theme
 

The 2018 theme is Together, let's connect to Earth. Every year millions of people, businesses and landmarks set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights and make noise for the Earth Hour movement.

How to take part?
 

What better way to celebrate than with the electrifying energy of Earth Hour as it sweeps across the planet? Remember to switch off in solidarity with global efforts to secure nature and our home: 24 March, 8:30pm your time. It’s time to #Connect2Earth.
