Join WWF Cymru for Earth Hour – Saturday 30th March
WWF’s Earth Hour is a global movement, which brings together people across the world to call for greater action on protecting our planet.
Each year millions of people around the world get involved by switching off their lights and organising events for their communities to show they care.
Why get involved?
Joining in with Earth Hour provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase the work you’re already doing to protect the environment as well as offering you the opportunity to present your vision for the future.
Why is Earth Hour so important?
Our world is under threat like never before. We’re destroying forests, choking the oceans with plastic, decimating wildlife population sizes, and causing devastating changes to the climate.
That’s why Earth Hour is so vital – it gives a powerful voice to people everywhere who want to put the world on the path to recovery.
There are several ways in which you can take part in Earth Hour 2019.
- Lights out: Switching off any non-essential lights for one hour to help create a symbolic and spectacular display and encouraging local landmarks and businesses in your area to do the same.
- Events: Running events in the community leading up to and on the day of Earth Hour to get people engaged. This could include anything from organising a creative project, a local candlelit dinner or hosting a dating in the dark event.
- Promotion: Showing support for Earth Hour by sharing on your social media channels and starting conversations with your friends and family about the issues that face nature in Wales. Hashtags to use on the night are #EarthHourWales and #AwrDdaear.
We are the first generation to know we are destroying the world. And we could be the last that can do anything about it. We must act now to reverse the damage and restore nature. We have the solutions, we just need our voices to be heard.
Make your voice heard; join us for this year’s #EarthHourWales
