Starting as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney, Australia in 2007, WWF’s Earth Hour has grown to become the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment. It’s been more successful than ever imagined – inspiring individuals, communities, governments, businesses and organizations and reaching more than 180 countries and territories in 2018. While climate change remains a vital issue for our planet, we must put the spotlight now on the accelerating loss of nature and the threats this poses to us all.
This Earth Hour, hundreds of millions of supporters and global networks will come together to spark never-before-had conversations on the loss of nature and ‘why nature matters’ to them. We need to reach more people than ever, helping them to understand why nature is so vital for their health, well-being, and prosperity, and why we need urgent action.
Over the past decade, Earth Hour has helped bring climate action to the top of the political and societal agenda. Now is the time for us to build on this to create a broader movement to protect and restore nature.
Earth Hour 2019 on Saturday, March 30 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. is
an amazing opportunity for you to start changing the planet for the better!
Also, be sure to attend our Party for the Planet on May 4th, 2019! Celebrate our Earth and learn even more ways to help save our planet, resources, and wildlife.
Connect to Earth is a global campaign from the World Wildlife Fund designed to spread the message as to why nature matters. Together, we hope to create a movement of people around the world who are speaking up to tackle the dual challenge facing the planet – climate change and the loss of nature.
By creating assets on key days throughout the year, WWF work to facilitate conversations about nature, raise awareness on the values of biodiversity and inform people of the steps they can take to conserve and use it sustainably.
WWF has partnered with United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to create connect2earth.org. It is a new platform designed to share ideas and tools to push for action and change. You can download open source assets to be used for your Earth Hour activities.
