Are you switching off your lights in support of WWF Earth Hour on Saturday 26th March? Let's come together to take care of each other and the one home we all share.
Each year, Earth Hour provides people around the world with the opportunity to show how much they care about nature and to help others understand its vital importance in all our lives as well as the devastating threats to people and planet. A time to celebrate, but also a time to highlight the need for action.
At 8.30pm hundreds of landmarks across the UK switch off their lights as a visual display of their commitment to the future of our planet – The Shard, Piccadilly Circus, Big Ben, London Eye, Buckingham Palace, and Edinburgh Castle to name a few.
It's a global commitment and the world’s most iconic landmarks also switch lights off to show support – such as the Sydney Opera House, Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal.
Join in by switching off your lights for one hour from 8.30pm on Saturday to show solidarity, and create an unmissable sight on-ground. Earth Hour reminds us that even small actions can make a big difference. Making just small changes in our own lives to reduce our carbon footprint does make a difference and inspires others to do the same. Together as a collective we are more powerful and can influence governments and businesses to help build an equitable, nature-positive and net-zero carbon future.
Don’t miss your chance to be a part of something big this Earth Hour, find out how to get involved.
Switch the lights off at 8.30pm, and put your phone down! Reconnect with friends and family and take time to observe nature. Here at Hoe Grange we are very lucky to be in a dark skies area and can clearly see the stars up above. Go our for a walk in the dark and listen to the sounds of the night. Reconnect with loved ones and cook your favourite meal and eat by candlelight. Or relax and listen to music, play board games or charades.

Nature underpins everything. The air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat all rely on functioning natural systems. The production of common goods, livelihoods and our health and wellbeing also rely on nature. Protecting nature is also key to counteracting the effects of climate change. We can’t beat climate change without protecting nature nor re-establish a thriving natural world without a stable climate.
Over time we have taken more and more from nature, altering landscapes and ecosystems beyond recognition, without consideration to the effects this may have; polluting waterways, filling the oceans with plastic waste and destroying nature on a massive scale.
It’s vital that we reverse the loss of biodiversity - the variety of life on Earth and places where they live - and it’s vital that we restore destroyed and deteriorated ecosystems as they underpin a healthy natural world.
Growing support for Earth Hour has helped WWF find solutions for the environmental challenges faced the world over. This includes influencing national climate policies, planting new forests in Uganda, and banning plastic in the Galapago.
The problem is we think we have time. But for a future where people and nature thrive we need to act today! Help shape our future: why not take the first step by calculating your environmental footprint,
Change is possible but only if we act together!
