Thank you for your support of Earth Hour and for taking action that positively affects the future of our planet! The stories we’ve heard from families, businesses and community events are fantastic.
More action! Earth Hour raises awareness about climate change issues but there’s more to it than switching off lights for one hour once a year. Earth Hour is a global movement that envisions a greener, cleaner planet. Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions, the leading driver of climate change, have increased by 32 per cent in the past 15 years. Climate change is happening right before our eyes. Droughts, wildfires, hurricanes – Canada’s Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on the planet.
So what’s next?
Urgent action on climate change is needed and WWF is working to put Canada on a path to 100% renewable energy by 2050. This will be our legacy for future generations and the planet. Learn more about our plan.
