Earth Hour Countdown
On Saturday 25th of March at 8.30pm, millions of people across the globe will unite to show they care about the future of our planet, by switching off lights for one hour. It is one of the world’s biggest Environmental actions for Nature, Creation and Climate across the world.
This annual event encourages people, parishes, communities, and businesses to ‘turn off’ non-essential electric lights, for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30pm as a symbol of commitment to the planet – and to help create a better world for the future.
Earth hour is a time to ‘switch off’ from distractions and to focus on our World.
