What is Earth Hour? Earth Hour is a global event centered around concern for climate change.
How can you and your family participate? On March 27 at 8:30 PM, all you have to do is flip down a switch. That's right: All you have to do to is turn off your lights for one hour! This period of darkness with millions of people in solidarity will send a powerful message as it moves from New Zealand all the way to Hawaii!
What is the goal of Earth Hour? Earth Hour began three years ago, and its continuing goal is to shed light on the climate-change crisis negatively affecting the entire world and future generations.
Event organizers say, "where we are already feeling the impacts of climate change, Earth Hour sends a clear message that Americans care about this issue and want to turn the lights out on dirty air, dangerous dependency on foreign oil and costly climate-change impacts, and make the switch to cleaner air, a strong economic future and a more secure nation."
