Earth Hour 2020
Last year during Earth Hour 2019, 180 countries and territories worldwide, plus millions of people across the globe switched off their lights in hope for a better future and to signify that we need to start saving the planet right now. In the UK alone, over 10 million people took part and even Buckingham Palace and Edinburgh Castle became involved!
Earth Hour is an annual event organised by the WWF, to inspire urgent action for the environment, and involves businesses and individuals switching off non-essential lighting for an hour in a show of support and symbolism.
With growing evidence that activities such as burning fossil fuels, agriculture and land clearance are all contributing to global warming, and Iceland’s glaciers losing about 10 billion tons of ice per year, never has it been more important to start making drastic changes.
If you really care about your planet and would like to help stop things before it’s too late, then do something now. It doesn’t matter whether you are an individual, community or business, pledge your support at https://www.earthhour.org/ or https://www.wwf.org.uk/earthhour, and become part of the solution!
