What is Earth Hour

There is no doubt about it: the world is facing some of the most critical environmental challenges in its history. That may make the journey to a sustainable future seem difficult to imagine, but it is far from impossible. Change this big needs you. It needs every one of us. Together our individual actions add up to make a difference collectively. In fact, change is already underway.

Earth Hour Canada

Canada's own City of Toronto was the first city to sign-up to Earth Hour in 2008 after the success of the first year in Sydney, Australia. It wasn't long before over 400 cities in 35 countries quickly followed suit making it a truly global movement. Since then, Canada has embraced the spirit of this celebration engaging 15 million Canadians year over year. For us at WWF-Canada, Earth Hour is a bit like an environmental New Year, providing us with a chance to reflect on how our planet is faring and what we can do to help. In 2012 millions of Canadians will come together again on Saturday March 31 between 8:30 PM – 9:30 PM. Learn how you can help at the official Earth Hour Canada website.
