So it’s full steam ahead for Earth Hour 2017! It’s the world’s biggest environmental event where for one hour people, organisations and iconic landmarks across the world switch off their lights to show they want action to protect the planet and prevent climate change.
So this year Earth Hour will take place between 8.30pm and 9.30pm on Saturday 25th March.
Earth Hour is a global movement, which brings millions together across the world to call for greater action.
Last year a record 178 countries took part – a number that rises every year. From the Sydney Opera House and the Eiffel Tower to Buckingham Palace and Edinburgh Castle, cities, towns and communities like yours across the world switch out their lights and come together for an hour, to join a global show of support for action on climate.
2017 is particularly special as it is World Wildlife Fund’s tenth anniversary so it would be great if you could get involved sign up and take part on the night. Turn out the lights, take some time and make Earth Hour matter for you, your friends, your family and ultimately YOUR PLANET.
