Earth Hour 2020
Earth Hour started as a symbolic lights-out event in Sydney in 2007. Now it is one of the world's largest movements for the environment. Held 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.
In light of the ongoing health crisis as a result of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, the Earth Hour global organizing team recommends all individuals to participate in Earth Hour virtually this year, for public health and safety.
But just because you're staying at home, that doesn't mean you can’t have a memorable Earth Hour on-the-night experience!
Here is a list of things you can do at home or online this Earth Hour to spend the hour, and help support our planet while you’re at it!
Switch off your lights: Simply switch off all non-essential lights for an hour!
Dinner-in-the-dark: Get some candles ready and whip up healthy and delicious meals.
Have a night of board games or book readings in candlelight
