WWF-Belgium

The Earth Hour movement in Belgium draws focus on creating a moment of unity centred around the need to take action on climate change. In 2014 WWF-Belgium will call upon cities, organisations and citizens to celebrate Earth Hour.

From the very beginning, the focus of WWF-Belgium has been to involve national and local governments not only to turn off their lights but also to engage their citizens.

In 2013 almost 6,000 people, 100 cities and 100 companies participated in Earth Hour and planned at least one specific action to go beyond the hour. A flash mob and a party were held at the Atomium, while many landmarks across the country turned off their lights for Earth Hour.
