Earth Hour 2019

Earth Hour 2019


Earth Hour is the world’s biggest switch off event – it gives a powerful voice to people everywhere who want to put the world on the path to recovery. Each year, millions of people around the world switch off their lights and organise events – at home, in their community or in their towns or cities – to show they care about the future of our planet.

Earth Hour is organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). It runs in more than 7,000 cities and towns across the world.

2019 will be the 10th Earth Hour to run in Wales.
