Earth Hour

Saturday, March 23 at 8:30 p.m. local time

Every year and everywhere, at 8:30 pm on a Saturday in late March, millions of people across the world join in raising awareness of the nature crises facing our planet.

It’s not just a symbol of support — it’s a catalyst for urgent change because Earth Hour is about more than 60 minutes. It’s a movement for our future.

Our planet is in crisis, but there is still time to keep biodiversity loss and climate change from reaching catastrophic levels.

To reverse nature loss by 2030, every hour is important. Spending 60 minutes doing something positive for the planet can turn into thousands and millions of hours of action and awareness.

On Saturday, March 23 at 8:30 pm local time, join millions of people around the world in making a difference during the Biggest Hour for Earth.

It’s time to make nature matter. This Earth Hour, take small actions, inspire big change – and give an hour for Earth.

Take part: Give an hour for Earth

How can you help us create the Biggest Hour for Earth?

Find 60 minutes to do something — anything — positive for our planet.

Not sure what to do? Check out these ideas:

  • Raise your voice for marine wildlife. Join the call for Canada to take action on underwater noise, which is negatively impacting species like narwhal and humpback whales.
  • Dream up your action plan for creating wildlife habitat at home or in your community. Sign up for a free re:grow account to learn how you can help support bees, birds and other wildlife by growing native plants.
  • Register for the WWF Climb for Nature. Every dollar you raise and every step you take is a step toward a brighter future for nature. This year, you can participate in Toronto (April 20-21), Vancouver (May 26) or anywhere in Canada (April 20-June 9).

Giving an hour for Earth can take many forms and can be done at any time during the day on March 23rd!

Every one of us has the power to make a positive impact on our planet – join us!
