Earth Hour is an hour long event to draw attention to climate change action. Around the globe, millions of people, businesses, and landmarks will set aside an hour to host events and switch off their lights at 8:30pm on 24 March 2018.
“Every year, by switching off our lights, we can shine a light on the need for action on climate change. Over the past decade the movement has achieved a massive environmental impact. With your support, it can make an even stronger impact again this year, says Deidré Penfold, Executive Director of the Chemical and Allied Industries’ Association (CAIA).
Last year, an unprecedented 187 countries and territories took part, over 3 000 landmarks worldwide switched off their lights and millions of individuals, businesses and organisations across seven continents stepped forward to make a difference to climate change.
Earth Hour is about the power of individuals - and the movement to change climate change would not have been possible without each of us who help shine a light on climate action!
