What is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour is an annual worldwide movement organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) which normally occurs on the last Saturday in March. Earth Hour began in Sydney, Australia in 2007 and has grown since then, encouraging individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights for just one hour from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm to show commitment and care to the planet.
This year everyone should strive to create the Biggest Hour for Earth together, by pledging to give an hour in various impactful ways and not just the iconic way of switching off your lights.
What are some ways that I can give one hour?
Reconnect with our planet!
Take a scenic, relaxing walk through nature. Ensure that you turn off all distractions before visiting the outdoors. This can be an eye-opening experience that will show you how truly beautiful the world is.
Restore our planet!
Engage in activity that restores our natural environment! A few activities you can do is plant a tree, clean a beach, or even rewild where you allow nature to reverse human interference and domestication thus repairing the damaged ecosystems and rebuilding biodiverse habitats.
