On Saturday 30 March at 8:30pm communities, businesses, schools, landmarks, restaurants, celebrities, politicians and people across Wales took part in Earth Hour!

Make a change.

Use your voice and make a change

We are the first generation to fully understand we are destroying the world. And the last that can do anything about it.

We, the people of the world, call on our leaders to urgently make an Emergency Declaration for the Planet. We must all commit to actions that will tackle climate change, restore nature, and fix the food system, which is the biggest driver of global nature loss.

Earth Hour Wales 2019

Each year, millions of people around the world switch off their lights and organise events – at home, in their community or in their towns or cities – to show they care about the future of our planet. 

Here's what happened for Earth Hour Wales, 2019

  • We brought Tinshed Theatre into the centre of Cardiff for pop-up theatre performances. It certainly caught the attention of passers by!
  • Good Gym Cardiff & The Vale held three runs, including two on the day of Earth Hour. Altogether, around 40 runners participated across the runs, with some travelling from Bristol to get involved! 
  • Through their events and workshops, Head4Arts engaged hundreds on the topics of climate change and wildlife decline. Plus held an amazing event on the night!
  • Other events happening across Wales included star-gazing in, community beach cleans and candlelit dinners. 
  • 21 out of 22 Local Authorities across Wales took part, with several going the extra mile and earning a star badge this year.
  • The magnificent Llandudno Pier switched off to mark the hour, and the images are stunning!

Good Gym Cardiff & The Vale, Earth Hour Wales
Good Gym Cardiff & The Vale held three runs, including two on the day of Earth Hour. But they didn't just run, they also supported community projects along the way through planting seeds at Plasnewydd Gardens. Altogether, around 40 runners participated across the runs, with some travelling from Bristol to get involved!

Head 4 Arts, Earth Hour Wales 2019
The Head 4 Arts event at Parc Penallta was magical! A field of giant animal lanterns welcomed the hundreds who attended; followed by a parade of storytelling, music and craft workshops.
