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.
