The 13th annual Earth Hour takes place this Saturday, March 30, 2019
Earth hour first started in 2007 in Sydney Australia.
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.
Join the largest environmental movement on Earth and turn the lights off at 08:30 PM for one hour for future generations!
