Each year, millions of people around the world turn off their lights for an hour to show their support for urgent action to address climate change. This year Earth Hour takes place on Saturday, March 19 at 8:30 p.m. local time.
Use your social power this Earth Hour
Switch on your social power and do your part in shining a light on climate action to show how much our planet matters to you. We’ve made it easy for you to donate your Facebook posts that Earth Hour will share on your Facebook Wall between March 16-19 2016. Or change your profile picture to a custom-made Earth Hour filter and help WWF and Earth Hour shine a light on climate action. Your action today can change our tomorrow. This is our time to #ChangeClimateChange. Our future starts today.
This year, for the first time in the fight against climate change, for the first time since the launch of Earth Hour in 2007, momentum is on our side. In December, leaders from 196 nations heeded the world’s collective call for action. And here in Canada, we are seeing new action and commitments from people, businesses, municipalities, provinces and the federal government.
We have reached a turning point, but we can’t rest yet. This year, help us shine a light on climate action for Earth Hour.
As the world stands at a climate crossroads, it is powerful yet humbling to think that our actions today will decide what tomorrow will look like for generations to come. Together, we can tackle climate change and create a future where people and nature thrive.
