What is Earth Hour?
Earth Hour is the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment. It engages millions of people around the world to take action for positive environmental impact. It starts with a symbolic way to show support for our planet by switching off our lights, but Earth Hour goes far beyond that. 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.
On 27 March from 8:30 PM in your local time zone, it’s time to switch off and #Connect2Earth
What can Scouts do?
As a first step, we can all start by simply switching off our lights and devices on 27 March for one hour, at 8:30 PM (in your local timezone).
There’s lots more you can do too, before, during and beyond Earth Hour! You can participate in Earth Hour by joining the Earth Tribe, choosing your path and taking the challenges to earn each badge!
You can also 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 speak up for nature at the same time, resulting in strong advocacy for a healthy planet on a global scale.
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!
