I'm sad to say this, "we are polluting earth". The world leaders aren't ready to ban plastics, coal mining, etc. Only speeches about how to save Earth. We have to use solar energy in every industry manufacturing activities and automotive sector. Education is the only key to change everything. In India, 99% Politicians are millionaires,billionaires. They don't work for people but they work for their families. If they take good decisions regarding nature & people education, we can easily maintain our Earth health. All the leaders across the world must take immediate actions against plastic, air pollution. Human period on earth is ending from our hand. Those who born before 1950, they were living minimum 90 years without any health issues but now, there is no guarantee that how many years we live. Everything is chemical. We have to consume naturally produced food not chemical compounded products. I accept that i'm a animal in this nature. I have to live under nature rules. In every nation, the leaders are doing blame game. They are not working together. Human period will end by war (leaders Immature steps), Hunger, Pollution, and "Money".
I'm very much sad ...... We have to pay huge money to see the beauty of earth. Earth need our caring hands not money.

Hyderabad , India
My Best friend, mood changer. Nature always steals my attention. Though people hurt me it will never. Clouds sends rain has it want to wash your tears and sadness, trees stands like "im there for you", sunshine vanishes your negatively brings positive vibes, fresh air always plays with you touching and running away as it challenges us to follow. Animals around make funny noise as they want to tell us something and fails when people don't understand. Every little thing on earth even microbes and cells are previous. As god gave us beautiful eyes, to see the goergous world, we are spoiling it's beauty. What not it has not adorable flowers that smells fab, crazy birds thse humms pleasant. Those who read this plant trees at your home surrounding please atleast what you could for it from your side as I did.
Mataram , Indonesia
In the beginning, I became a volunteer at @earthhourmataram because I was curious about the importance of turning off a lamp. When I entered and participated in their activities, I realized that there are lots of knowledge and benefits from turning off lights for the environment! As a result of #Gara2EH, I was once ignorant about protecting the environment, but now I have started to be a part of the environment guard! In my opinion, the environment is the most important thing in our lives, if our environment is damaged, then all our lives will also be damaged. And I don't want that to happen! Let us all be young people who can contribute to a sustainable nature! #IniAksiku #Connect2Earth #RAISEYOURVOICEFORNATURE
Lima , Peru
For me nature means home. Thanks to her, we know and enjoy life. From the air we breathe, the food that feeds us, to the beach that we enjoy in summer and countless places, and animals, that we can meet and appreciate in their habitat. However, to enjoy nature, current and future generations, it is necessary to raise awareness of the problems that we face due to activities that we carry out daily. Therefore, conservation and environmental education are key. For that reason, as part of WWF Peru team, I have carried out the Festimar, a marine-coastal conservation festival at 22 coastal communities in order to protect our sea and its species. Through games, people get to know more about our great biodiversity and what we can do to protect it. Together we can take care of our home.
Shanghai , China
Nature is our mother. It gives lives and provides all we need.
Nature is the home to all living things. We have the responsibility to protect it.
Nature is the source of power and wisdom. Human being once was more connected to nature but we have lost the connection and become ignorant as a whole. We need to wake up and start to make changes to the way we live and treat our environment and other living things.
Nairobi , Kenya
It does not matter how small you are, everything you do for the environment counts. I am 15 years old and I love football and outdoor adventure. I understood the impact of deforestation, climate change and plastic pollution when I was about 11 years old. I decided to do something about it. I combined my love for football and nature. I committed that for every goal I score I plant a tree. That’s how the Trees for Goals initiative was born. Through the initiative, I have influenced change in my school, my football club, local community as well as encourage my friends to join the afforestation efforts. I increased my target seven times; for every goal, I score I plant Seven trees, then to 11 times my initial target: for every goal, I score I plant 11 trees it represents team effort in football. I have planted over 1000 trees in the last two years. That’s my Earth Hour 2020 TWICE the effort DOUBLE the Impact.

Madina Amin Hussein
Garissa , Kenya
I was born in Bodhei , my people are farmers in the semi-arid region of Garissa. Growing up my village was green, but unsustainable agriculture and deforestation has made Bodhei lose it’s green. In the neighbouring Masalani, communities are more inclined to pastoralism. Pastoralists believe God grows trees or trees just grow by themselves like grass, and it’s their duty to utilise. I am on a mission to change the myth. This can only be achieved through action on the ground and a strong movement that will advocate for sustainability and call for reafforestation- that movement is young people from my community and beyond.

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 symbol of power in collective action for nature.
