Earth Hour: Power down for the planet. Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Earth Hour

One Hour. No power.

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. Joining in this simple act raises awareness of the need to take action on climate change. Each year, hundreds of millions of people across more than 100 countries participate.

This year, Earth Hour takes place on Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Can you make it one hour with no power?

Why take part in Earth Hour?

60: Earth 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 create a better future for our planet.

Newly launched for 2014, Earth Hour Blue gives you more ways to make an impact on climate change. This crowdsourcing and crowdfunding platform supports projects for the planet in locations around the globe. Add your voice to a cause or back a promising initiative with Earth Hour Blue.
