IISD-CMI Celebrates
Earth Hour, with WWF- India

Celebrates Earth Hour each year with

Every year, on the Last Saturday of March, millions of people, businesses and landmarks set aside one hour to switch off all non-essential lights between 8:30-9:30pm, host events and join the movement to raise awareness about the need to protect the Planet

Speak up for nature by pledging to switch off this Earth Hour. 2021 is a critical year for nature - where world leaders will make global commitments and decisions on climate action, sustainable development, and biodiversity. Take action for a healthy natural world as it is one of our greatest allies to fight climate change.

Get to know more about the history of the Hour!
Started in India in 2009, Earth Hour, in its very first year, garnered the support of people across 58 cities in the country. Over the years, the campaign has seen massive participation from all society. This includes individuals, schools, colleges, communities, celebrities, chief ministers, and several government officials.

The campaign also sees landmark monuments' participation across the country like Rashtrapati Bhavan, India Gate, Gateway of India, the Charminar, Howrah Bridge, etc., switching off its lights for an hour to commemorate the hour.

In light of the current situation, the IISD-CMI and WWF India organising team recommends all individuals to take part digitally. You can be spending the Hour with friends and family inside your home. Don't forget to follow all social distancing norms and precautions for public safety.
