Earth Hour: What You Need to Know




Earth Hour is an event where people all across the globe turn off their lights for one hour to show solidarity for the planet. This year, Earth Hour will take place on March 30 at 8:30pm local time. The goal of this event is to raise awareness about climate change and

sustainability in order to create a better future for our planet. It's easy to participate! Simply find out what time your country will be participating, make sure you are prepared

with flashlights, candles or battery powered devices before the designated hour starts and then turn off your lights during that hour! This big event brings together communities from all over the world which can help bring global attention towards environmental

conservation efforts.


You can also take the opportunity of being more mindful about how much energy you use at home by turning things off when they're not needed or switching them off completely if possible. Earth Hour originated in Sydney, Australia in 2007 with 2.2 million residents and approximately 400 cities taking part globally.
