Costa Rica joined the Earth Hour Project to support local initiatives and create its own environmental campaigns to provoke and promote consciousness about climate change and the importance of sustainable development.

Costa Rica´s abundant natural resources and geographical position add urgency its support of the Earth Hour movement. The country straddles both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, and mountain systems that provide varying microclimates, creating a vast natural richness within various ecosystems.

The Earth Hour Costa Rica goal is to join the existing environmental local movement and support national policies that include climate change and sustainable development initiatives in a creative way. Ultimately, the efforts should help to form new habits and consciousness in its citizens.
