Join the global event!

WWF’s Earth Hour is our global annual event, where hundreds of millions of people from across the world will come together and switch off their lights for one hour in a symbolic and spectacular display.

Over 5,000 amazing schools across the UK are taking part in the days and weeks leading up the main event. Pupils really enjoyed taking part in this annual event, holding assemblies, having lessons by torch light and creating amazing recycled lanterns during the week of Earth Hour. We have a range of resources for you and your pupils to make this your best Earth Hour ever!
