WWF’s Earth Hour is a simple idea that’s quickly turned into a global phenomenon. Hundreds of millions of people turning off their lights for one hour, on the same night, all across the planet. It’s about appreciating the brilliant world we all share – and how we need to protect it. Not just for an hour a year, but every day.

Beyond the hour…

WWF’s Earth Hour is not about an hour of darkness. It’s about a brighter future for our planet. And that goes beyond the hour to the way we live our lives – year around. Start to reduce your impact by reducing your energy consumption, recycling, cooking your own food and so much more. Have a look at some practical tips here.

Help save 1 billion trees in the Amazon Rainforest

As well as turning off your lights for an hour to show you care about our brilliant planet, you can support our work to help protect it.

For the second year, money raised through Earth Hour will help to protect the Amazon rainforest with Sky Rainforest Rescue.
