Giving the planet back one hour

Millions of people in more than 180 countries are expected to take part in Earth Hour this Saturday. People are asked to turn off their lights for one hour in support of a healthier planet.


With the rising cost of gas and electricity and with many families struggling with their day-to-day finances, it’s not surprising Earth Hour has become more popular.  


Earth Hour encourages individuals, communities, corporations, and households to turn off their lights to support the fight against climate change. Started by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Sydney in 2007, the event is held annually on the last Saturday of March from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm.


Earth Hour is not only about advocating for the environment but also backing political change that will have a positive impact on the planet. Other aims include initiating conversations about protecting nature, as well as ensuring the health, prosperity, and survival of people all over the globe.



Such has been the success of Earth Hour, WWF has now become a worldwide sponsor and is aiming to increase awareness through crowdfunding initiatives. Crowdfunding invites environmentally aware individuals to donate in order to raise funds to do other environmental work across the planet.
