Earth Hour:

What it is and Why you should do it


In the year 2007, people in Sydney, Australia turned off their electricity to demand that Sydney’s government take action against climate change from 8:30 to 9:30 on a certain day in March. And people listened. Now, in 2019, it is an event millions of people participate in annually. The world’s largest candlelit dinner takes place in Sweden – for Earth Hour!

This year Earth Hour events worldwide will take place on March 30 at 8:30 pm wherever you are. 


Earth Hour is on March 30.

This year’s activities range from turning off electricity to riding bikes (to demanding reduction of fossil fuels), and every event looks toward a brighter future. Earth Hour has proven to be an amazing conservation victory year after year, and we hope that you join. It really helps let people know about the problems the faces from climate change.
