Why we do

Now going into its eighteenth year, Earth Hour continues to shine a light on climate change and nature loss - the two biggest environmental issues facing our planet today. The time for action has never been more critical. Earth Hour encourages participants to share their commitment to the planet by Giving an hour for Earth, to create the Biggest hour for Earth yet. Participants are encouraged to dedicate one hour to planet-friendly activities, from embracing sustainable diets to learning about the environmental issues that we are facing. This serves as a rallying cry for the unprecedented collective action needed to address pressing environmental challenges.
