What is Earth Hour?

Earth Hour is the moment millions come together for nature, people and the planet.

Joining the big switch off reminds us that even small actions can make a big difference. Because we’re not alone.   

At 8.30pm on 27 March, take an hour to switch off your lights in solidarity with people around the world.

EARTH HOUR AT HOME 

Whether it’s switching off your lights, switching off your phone for an hour or spending time with others – Earth Hour’s a time to reconnect to what’s important.

Get involved 

You’re not alone! Millions of others are switching off for Earth Hour across the world – join the conversation on social media for inspiration and share what you’re doing. #EarthHourWales 

Scroll down to see which events and activities are happening online, on the night. 

Get creative

Switching off for Earth Hour doesn't have to mean being in total darkness! You could create a lantern or a puppet then bring them to life during the hour using a torch or candlelight. 

Get thinking

2021 is the start of an important decade for climate and nature action. This year, leaders from across the world will make decisions that will impact our futures.  

In Wales, the Senedd 21 Elections will determine which Welsh Government will lead the vital action needed in the coming years. The next Welsh Government must deliver a Wales fit for future generations. 

Use the hour to talk to friends and families about the things that are important to you. Keep scrolling to discover more about what we think the next Welsh Government should deliver.

2021

The Senedd 21 Elections will determine which Welsh Government will lead the vital action needed in the coming years. The next Welsh Government must deliver a Wales fit for future generations. 

By 2030, nature and wildlife could be recovering all around us. We could have green jobs, cleaner air and a healthier future for the next generation.

Our future and that of generations to come is in our hands. We can make a difference, begin the green recovery and make Wales a better place for people and nature.
