With everything going on in the world right now, let’s all take an hour out of our lives to honor Mother Nature.
Founded in Sydney, Australia, Earth Hour is one of the world’s largest grassroots initiatives dedicated to protecting the environment.
Over the years, this movement has grown exponentially across the globe. By engaging millions of people in over 180 countries, Earth Hour has been a catalyst for positive change.
Earth Hour encourages people around the world to switch off their lights for an hour (8:30-9:30 PM) on a specific day towards the end of March. This symbolic act shows commitment to the planet and the fight against climate change, and this year, the event will be held on Saturday, March 28.
Earth Hour 2020 faces the unprecedented challenge of the global pandemic COVID-19. For this reason, the organizers are encouraging anyone who cannot switch off their lights to show their support digitally — by signing their online petition.
There are numerous ways to participate in this event, from sharing your Earth Hour experience on Instagram and Facebook (using the hashtag #EarthHour and tagging @EarthHour) to participating in their social media challenges. Saving the planet has never been more critical.
