About Us

Earth Hour is all about celebrating our planet and its huge variety of life!

We are a non-profit

Earth Hour is a charitable organisation based out of Singapore. Our mission is uniting people to protect the planet. We are an open source movement organised by WWF and volunteer organisations worldwide.

The Lights Off Event

Earth Hour was started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage more than 180 countries and territories worldwide. Earth Hour 2019 is on 30 March 2019, 8:30 pm.

EARTH HOUR IS A GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENT BY WWF.

WWF is the parent organisation of Earth Hour and started Earth Hour with teams and partners in Sydney, Australia back in 2007.

 

Earth Hour™ Global is a registered Charity under the Charities Act in Singapore and company limited by guarantee. Even though this is an opensource campaign, the Earth Hour brand is legally trademarked worldwide and licensed for use by WWF delivering the Earth Hour movement.

EARTH HOUR’S IMPACT ON THE PLANET.

Your commitment to the planet helps to create far-reaching environmental and social impact. Our projects and outcomes continue to go beyond the hour long celebration held in March.
