WWF’s Earth Hour is the biggest movement to protect our planet and will take place from 8.30pm on Saturday 24 March 2018 and this year WWF is asking people to make a promise for the planet to live more sustainably.

Hundreds of millions of people around the planet take part in WWF’s Earth Hour every year. Last year around 9 million took part in the UK alone.

In 2017, Scotland again received support from all local authorities – in fact Glasgow City Council was named Scotland’s Local Authority Earth Hour Champion – joining 186 countries and territories from every continent on the planet. An eye-catching 165 iconic buildings and landmarks switched off their lights, joining 3,000 others around the world in WWF’s Earth Hour’s unique display of darkness, which has become a global phenomenon.

This year, as landmarks, organisations, businesses and individuals switch off in solidarity, the spotlight turns to the 1 in 6 species at risk of extinction from climate change. As recent media such as BBC’s Blue Planet II raises public awareness about the plight of species suffering from rapidly changing climates, for Earth Hour 2018, WWF is asking people to make a promise for the planet to live more sustainably.
