Earth Hour is almost here!
What is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour is an hour dedicated to bringing awareness to climate change through the simple act of turning off the lights. It’s that easy! Around the world there will be people and communities participating.
How to Participate
It’s easy! Just turn off the lights for an hour at 8:30pm Your Local Time on March 28th. There are also events happening world-wide that you can participate in. Find (or start) an event near you here.
Why am I participating?
This will be my third year participating. I participate because this event, while being very simple, is a very easy way to visibly show that people do in fact care about climate change. It also shows just how much impact one small action can have. Individually we may be people sitting in the dark for one hour, on one night, but together we are entire communities and cities that have gone dark for one simple cause: to save our world.
We rely on the very energies that pollute, kill, and destroy our world. It doesn’t have to be this way. Through our own actions we can choose to make choices that make a difference. A difference that will lead to a planet that thrives instead of dies. A world that will actually be fit to have our children and grand children live in, instead of one that leaves them with even more difficult survival options than we have today.
By taking action and turning out your lights for just an hour, you will reduce your energy consumption. This might not seem like a lot, but when your entire city does it, that’s a lot of energy conserved!
