EARTH HOUR 2015, March 28


In less than a month - on March 28 - Earth Hour will take place around the world. 

Earth Hour started in 2007 as a lights-off event to raise awareness about the imperiled earth. It has grown to engage more than 162 countries and territories worldwide. Earth Hour is on Saturday, 28 March 2015 at 8:30 pm local time.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is the parent organization of Earth Hour.



At the core of any Earth Hour celebration is switching off or turning down the lights. 
Organize an event around the act of switching off or dimming down the lights. "Cocktails by Candlelight" or entirely turning off any exterior signage. 

Some towns have used Earth Hour as the kickoff for an entire week or month of Earth-inspired activities that include the celebration of Earth Day.



Its a small step but it is the right step toward environmental global consciousness...watch this short official Earth Hour video:

  1. What a lovely post! Here in WWF Finland our Earth Hour theme this year is "a candlelight supper", raising awareness on the fact that what we eat significantly affects the climate. As an avid home gardener I'm happy, that I have a chance to grow my own beautiful veg and contribute to the wellbeing of the planet (and my own health at the same time, what a twofer). Thank you for your beautiful blog! If I can make a request, it would be fun to see more edible gardens! They can be made so beautifully too.

  2. I love the effect the Earth Hour campaign has on people. It just goes to show how many of us sincerely care for our environment. I totally agree that it's a small step towards the environmental global consciousness. Anyway, I really enjoyed the video, Jan! Thanks for sharing that! All the best to you! :)
