Why take part in Earth Hour?

Earth Hour is a global movement organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It is held annually in late March and asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour.

Earth Hour is about more than just switching off lights for sixty minutes a year. It’s about focusing on the small actions that individuals can take to reduce their energy consumption and environmental footprint. Simple changes in lifestyle choices can make a big difference to your individual environmental impact. Earth Hour gives people the chance to talk about these lifestyle choices, and to work together to tackle the challenge of climate change.

Participating institutions across Campus Alberta: University of Alberta, Bow Valey College, Olds College, Concordia University College, Red Deer College, Canadian University College, MacEwan University, Norquest College, University of Calgary, Keyano College, Grand Prairie Regional College.

159 Pledges to-date for the Earth Hour Campus Challenge.
