Schools : Earth Hour ! Let's do it !






Earth Hour 2016

Each year, millions of people around the world turn off their lights for an hour to show their support for urgent action to address climate change. 

This year Earth Hour takes place on Saturday, March 19 at 8:30 p.m. local time.

Lights in homes, buildings and famous landmarks will be turned off for an hour tomorrow to mark WWF's annual event.

This year, the fight against climate change, for the first time since the launch of Earth Hour in 2007, momentum is on our side. 


In December, leaders from 196 nations heeded the world’s collective call for action.
As the world stands at a climate crossroads, it is powerful yet humbling to think that our actions today will decide what tomorrow will look like for generations to come. Together, we can tackle climate change and create a future where people and nature thrive.


#ChangeClimateChange 2016

We have reached a turning point, but we can’t rest yet. This year, help us shine a light on climate action for Earth Hour.


Earth Hour

Education: 
We will use our power to take action #ChangeClimateChange. Of course we can miss this important call to support such an important world project. Neither our students.

They are working some while ago to join this wonderful commitment to save the Planet. They are the new environmentalgeneration.


Earth Hour belongs to us. We will celebrate our commitment to the planet with our students, friendsfamilycommunity or at work - in our own way. 





A simple event can be just turning off all non-essential lights from 8.30pm-9:30 pm, tomorrow.

With just one day to go until Earth Hour - New Zealand will be 
the first country to switch off the lights - a record of more than 180 countries and more than 7 000 cities. The most charismatic monuments of the world will switch off lights too.

Now in its 10th year Earth Hour, organised by WWF, has evolved into the largest environment grassroots movement connecting hundred of millions of people across all seven continents.

Students were excited since the first year we participated in Earth Hour 2008. After that, every Earth Hour have been celebrated at school, 
Languages curricula.
