Every year on the last Saturday of March, Earth Hour engages millions of people in more than 180 countries and territories, switching off their lights to show support for our planet. Earth Hour goes far beyond the symbolic action of switching off - it has become a catalyst for positive environmental impact, driving major legislative changes by harnessing the power of the people and collective action. The goal of Earth Hour is to raise awareness about energy consumption and its impact on the environment.
Earth Hour is an open-source and welcomes everyone and anyone to take part and help amplify their mission to unite people to protect our planet.
We, Páme Care encourage you to take part in Earth Hour this Saturday, March 27th at 8:30. Here are a few ways that you can participate:
1. Switch off your lights for an hour
Switch off your lights for an hour and get creative of things you can do in the dark. It only takes 60 minutes to raise awareness about energy consumption and how it impacts our environment. Stuck on what to do? Here are a few activities you can do in the dark:
- Dinner in the dark
- Board game night with candlelight
- Movie/documentary night
- Make a fort
- Educate yourself on environmental issues
2. Participate in Earth Hour's Virtual Spotlight
On the night of Earth Hour, @earthhourofficial will be posting a must-watch video on all of their social media pages, and all you have to do is watch and share it.
Share it to your Stories or to your wall, re-Tweet it, send it via DM, tag friends in the comments - the choice is yours!
Whether you share it with one person or one hundred, you'll be helping to place the spotlight on our planet, the issues we face, and our place within it all.
