Earth Hour Scotland
Over the last 10 years, Scotland has made its mark on the international Earth Hour map with consistently impressive levels of national participation. In 2017, Scotland again received support from all local authorities, joining 186 countries and territories from every continent on the planet. An eye-catching 165 iconic buildings and landmarks switched off their lights, joining 3,000 others around the world in WWF’s Earth Hour’s unique display of darkness, which has become a global phenomenon.
This year, as landmarks, organisations, businesses and individuals switch off in solidarity, the spotlight turns to the 1 in 6 species at risk of extinction from climate change. As recent media such as BBC’s Blue Planet II raises public awareness about the plight of species suffering from rapidly changing climates, for Earth Hour 2018, WWF is asking people to make a promise for the planet to live more sustainably.
