On March 23rd at 8:30 pm, hundreds of millions of people around the world will turn off their lights for an hour to demand action on climate change. But that's just the beginning. Every hour, Canadians are taking small steps to lessen their impact on the environment. From hanging your clothes to dry to taking transit to work, those small steps add up to huge changes for the better.
Earth Hour is a highly visible symbolic act. One that brings people of all ages and backgrounds around the world together to sound a clear call-to-action for our most pressing global challenge: climate change. Turning off lights for one hour won’t solve climate change. But the strong message generated by people across every continent turning off their lights together helps create the political space and demand for the large-scale change that will.
All we ask you to do is switch off your lights from 8:30pm – 9:30pm on Saturday, March 23.
