At 8.30pm on 23 March hundreds of millions of people will turn off their lights for one hour, on the same night, all across the world in a huge, symbolic show of support. It’s always a memorable and spectacular event with places from New York to New Delhi going dark for the hour.
Now is your chance to take action to protect our planet – not just for one hour, but every day. So for Earth Hour 2013, as we all switch off our lights at 8.30pm, we want the focus to be on the kind of energy we use. Because to create a better future for our planet we need to move away from dirty fossil fuels and onto clean green renewable energy which works with the awesome power of nature, not against it.
There is no doubt about it: the world is facing some of the most critical environmental challenges in its history. That may make the journey to a sustainable future seem difficult to imagine, but it is far from impossible. Change this big needs you. It needs every one of us. Together our individual actions add up to make a difference collectively. In fact, change is already underway.
Sign up for Earth Hour 2013 and switch off on 23 March – Can You Do It In The Dark?
