What better excuse to party this Earth Hour than saving the planet?
As an Eco School, we have been thinking about the importance of saving energy, both at home and at school. We would also like to encourage our families to celebrate WWF’s Earth Hour. Earth Hour is an annual global celebration where people switch off their lights for one hour to show they care about the future of our planet. Earth Hour is not about how much energy is saved during the hour. Rather, it’s a chance to put the spotlight on the issues facing the planet, and to inspire millions across the world to live more sustainably.

On the 19 March at 8.30pm, millions around the world will be switching off their lights and enjoying their dinner by candlelight for this year’s Earth Hour. It’s a symbolic and spectacular lights-out display with a big message – we want to protect the future of our planet! Why not join them by throwing your own candlelit party and help support our vital work too?
Since it first began in Sydney Australia in 2007, the number of countries taking part in Earth Hour has grown to an incredible 172 countries and territories – a number that keeps rising every year!
