Overview


Earth Hour has always been for everyone. Every year, the hour of no power turns individuals into a million-strong community of people raising their voice for nature through the symbolic action of switching off our lights.  This year we have decided to do things a little differently, we celebrated Earth Hour online to allow everyone to participate from the comfort of their own homes. The focus of our campaign this year was a live broadcast on Saturday, March 26th, 2022 from 6:30pm to “Lights Out” at 8:30pm featuring conversations about some of the goals that our organisation has for Bermuda, efforts being made in the community to live and operate more sustainably, and practical steps we can all take to play our part in creating a sustainable future for generations to come.  During the broadcast we raised funds through pledges and donations while encouraging the viewing audience to sign up as individual members and corporate supporters as well.                                                            

Purpose


  • To strengthen our connection with nature, inspire environmental action and raise awareness about sustainable living.
