What is Earth Hour

On Saturday 26 March at 8.30pm, join millions of people across the globe unite to share that they care about people and the planet. Together we are part of a global movement for action on the climate and nature emergency. 

Together, we can help make it normal to live sustainably. Eating a more planet-friendly diet, choosing an ethical bank or divesting your pension, talking about climate change, sharing tips with friends, organising as a community, calling for change from businesses and politicians – it all adds up.

Will you join the movement this Earth Hour?
