Earth Hour has been raising attention to the unfolding climate crisis since 2007, helping millions on their journey to understand the reality and urgency of the climate crisis we face. In 2018, Earth Hour was celebrated in over 180 countries. Earth Hour has helped empower people to take action well beyond the “day” too; from pushing for environmentally-friendly laws and policies to crowdfunding for a better future, each one of us helps push the boulder up the hill on climate solutions, and also helps slow it down when it begins to roll back. We know our Climate Mamas and Papas embrace “Earth Hour” each hour of every day. As with Earth Day, on April 22nd, Earth Hour provides a platform to remind so many others to join us in our life long journey as we all live climate change.
So, join us on Saturday, March 30th at 8.30PM your local time and invite your friends, your family and your community to switch off the lights and speak up on climate solutions, hopes and actions. Together when millions of people come together at the same moment, the universe feels it!
With the kids in your life, pledge to work on climate solutions at Voice for the Planet, and follow up in weekly family meeting to see how each family member is doing. Learn more at the Earth Hour website and share the Earth Hour tools with your family, students, teachers, and broader community.
