What is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour is the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment. It’s an opportunity for you to start changing the planet for the better, and for all of us to work together to protect and restore nature.
Nature matters to every one of us. It provides the things we need to live, from the air we breathe to the water we drink. But the more and more we take from nature, the more we need to give back to it. We can’t have a prosperous future on a depleted planet, and that’s why we’re taking action on Earth Hour. On 28 March from 8:30 pm in your local time zone, it’s time to switch off and #Connect2Earth
What can Scouts do?
First, everyone is encouraged to simply switch off non-essential lights on 28 March from 8:30-9:30 PM (in your local timezone).
There’s lots more you can do too, before, during and beyond Earth Hour! Participating in Earth Hour doesn't only mean you you need to join a gethering in your city or organizing a big event. You can participate in Earth Hour and advocate to protect nature, from your own home!
As Scouts, we’re committed to the environment in our everyday actions. During this campaign, we work together to action at the same time, resulting in strong advocacy for a healthy planet on a global scale. To find out more what you can do virtually join our special JOTI at jotajoti.info
Once you’re done, tell us about your contributions to Earth Hour by posting on social media using the hashtag #EarthHour while tagging @WorldScouting for a chance to be featured on our channels!
