Earth Hour March 29th 2014
Earth Hour 2014

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% in the past 15 years. Canada is way off-track on meeting our 2020 targets.

In 2007, 2.2 million people in Sydney, Australia did 1 small thing to show they cared about fighting climate change. They turned off the lights for Earth Hour. Turning off the lights for 1 hour won’t solve climate change. But the strong message generated by people around the
world turning off their lights together helps WWF demand the large-scale change that will.

In 2013, Earth Hour reached over 1 billion people in over 4,000 cities in over 130 countries around the world. More than 10 million of those people were Canadians, taking part in over 300 cities. Together, we sent 1 powerful message to governments and world leaders about the need for action on climate change.

Earth Hour 2014 takes place from 8:30 – 9:30 pm on March 29. Turn off your lights and show the rest of the world how much you care!
