When: March 27th, 8:30-9:30pm local time

What: Join hundreds of millions of people around the world by doing something quite simple — turning off your lights for one hour.

Participating in Earth Hour sends a message that you want to turn the lights out on dirty air, dependency on foreign oil and costly climate change impacts.

It’s easy! View the toolkits, to find out what else you can do to get involved including leading the Earth Hour movement in your community.
