Earth Hour in the UK takes place from 8.30 to 9.30pm on Saturday 24 Marchwww.wwfscotland.org.uk/earthhour #EarthHourUK and #PromiseForThePlanet

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.
