This Earth Hour, help shine a light on climate change
This Earth Hour, WWF-Canada calls on people across the country to join others around the world to send a strong global message.
The 12th annual Earth Hour takes place at 8:30 p.m. local time on Saturday, March 24, 2018. Six continents, over 170 countries, and 24 time zones will be united as a global community, making our voices heard through individual action.
Turn off as much power as you can and focus on your commitment to climate action for the rest of this year.
How WWF-Canada helpsAs the hour without power highlights, electricity is essential to our lives. We need to produce that electricity from sources that don’t contribute to climate change or damage habitats.
WWF-Canada is showing how that’s possible. Over the next five years, we will work to demonstrate that low-impact renewable energy, such as wind, solar and hydropower, is possible and can contribute to sustainability.
WWF-Canada’s plan for habitat-friendly renewable energy folds in two parts:
- Make a replicable, scalable, and self-sustaining business model for renewable energy investments in the Arctic.
- Demonstrate the possible by deploying low-impact habitat-friendly renewable energy technologies to three candidate Arctic communities.
