Overview


On Saturday, March 23rd, from 6:30 pm to “Lights Out” at 8:30 pm, we will air our Earth Hour Live broadcast, featuring conversations about some of the goals 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.

Collective Action for Our Future


Every year, we countdown together across the globe to celebrate Earth Hour and take one iconic action: switch off the lights. But it is so much more than that. It is a symbol of unity. It is a symbol of hope. It is a demonstration of the power of collective action for our future and the planet's. Join us in creating the Biggest Hour for Earth on 23rd March - switch off your lights and spend 60 minutes doing something positive for our planet!

 

Your Hour, Your Power.

Through Earth Hour we know that each and every one of us has the power to make a positive impact on our planet, but it’s up to us as individuals to decide how we do so. To empower you with the resources needed to make an impact, we have created an interactive document titled the Earth Hour Guide to Getting Involved.  This document lays out a list of carefully thought-out recommendations for businesses, people, schools and community organizations.  Click on the cover image below to open the online document or download the PDF file and share it with your friends. Spread the word on social - use the hashtag #EarthHourBda
