Earth Hour is a highly visible symbolic act. One that brings people of all ages and backgrounds around the world together to sound a clear call-to-action for our most pressing global challenge: climate change. Turning off lights for one hour won’t solve climate change. But the strong collective message generated by people around the world turning off their lights together helps WWF create the political space and demand for the large-scale change that will.
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.
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.
Earth Hour demonstrates how great things can be achieved when people come together for a common cause. We hope that you will join us in support this year.
