Earth Hour is a global WWF climate change initiative. It is an event that aims to create awareness of people taking responsibility towards a sustainable future by turning the lights off. Earth Hour is not to be confused with Earth Day. What Do People Do? Millions of people turn off their lights for Earth Hour at 8.30pm (20:30) in their local times on the last Saturday of March. Iconic buildings and landmarks from Europe to Asia ...to the Americas have stood in darkness during previous Earth Hours. Some people enjoy Earth Hour with a candle-lit dinner or a candle-lit bath, while others host large events or parties, either in darkness or with candles, to celebrate Earth Hour.Businesses and government. Organizations, as well as community and political leaders also take part in Earth Hour. It's about giving people a voice on the planet’s future and working together to create a sustainable low carbon future for planet earth.
