Earth Hour is coming. On March 24, turn off the light and connect with the planet. Join this global action

Thanks to you, Earth Hour is now living its 12th edition, and today it is more necessary than ever.

The largest global movement against climate change

Earth Hour was born 11 years ago, in Sydney, as a symbolic gesture to draw attention to the problem of climate change. Turning off the lights of emblematic homes, buildings and monuments for an hour was the simple action that would later articulate a growing worldwide movement for the Planet.

Last year, thousands of cities from 187 countries around the world took part, turning off more than 12,000 monuments and iconic buildings, uniting citizens, companies, city councils and institutions to, together, "change climate change."

With this last motto we have promoted direct actions to fight against climate change and develop conservation initiatives beyond climate action. And thus, Earth Hour has become a unique opportunity in defense of the Planet, promoting sustainable lifestyles, promoting renewable development, conserving our forests, seas and natural resources, or fighting against the loss of biodiversity.

We are living through the warmest period in history, with prolonged heat waves and droughts, increasingly frequent extreme weather events and displacement of peoples due to climate change, which is also one of the main causes of biodiversity loss. Because everything is connected, because they are two sides of the same coin, Earth Hour will connect hundreds of millions of people around the world to act against climate change and the loss of biodiversity.

In 2018, Earth Hour calls once again for the union of everyone, individuals, city councils, companies and organizations, to turn off the light because there are many reasons to do so.

You are being a witness. We are living through the warmest period in history, with prolonged heat waves and droughts, increasingly frequent extreme weather events and displacement of peoples due to climate change, which is also one of the main causes of biodiversity loss.

In 2018, Earth Hour calls once again for the union of everyone, individuals, city councils, companies and organizations, to turn off the light because there are many reasons to do so. Together we are stronger and our voice can go very far when we march together in defense of the Planet. Join the Earth Hour, attend the events that we are going to organize and, of course, turn off the light on March 24, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
