This Earth Hour
YOU’VE GOT A DATE WITH NATURE!
What is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour is WWF’s flagship global environmental movement. Born in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour has grown to become one of the world’s largest grassroots movements for the environment, inspiring individuals, communities, businesses and organizations in more than 180 countries and territories to take tangible environmental action for over a decade. Historically, Earth Hour has focused on the climate crisis, but more recently, Earth Hour has strived to also bring the pressing issue of nature loss to the fore. The aim is to create an unstoppable movement for nature, as it did when the world came together to tackle climate change. The movement recognizes the role of individuals in creating solutions to the planet’s most pressing environmental challenges and harnesses the collective power of its millions of supporters to drive change.
What can scouts do?
As scouts, we believe that we can make a difference wherever we go! Even your own home there is a lot you can do for the environment!
With the launch of the Earth Tribe, we encourage all scouts to take individual action and learn more about ways you can advocate for better choices and be a champion nature and biodiversity.
First, everyone is encouraged to simply switch off non-essential lights on 26 March from 8:30-9:30 PM (in your local timezone).
