The goal of the Earth Hour campaign

When the campaign first started in 2007, people around the world were encouraged to turn off their lights to draw attention to climate change, and more than a decade later, the climate crisis is still raging, even worsening and we are witnessing a rapid loss of biodiversity and natural systems .

Not only does nature provide us with food, water, clean air and many other things, but it is also one of our strongest allies against climate change, so protecting nature is one of the immediate and most cost-effective solutions to the climate crisis.
