March 27, 2021 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
Earth Hour will be held worldwide, 8:30-9:30 p.m. your local time.
Our first-ever “digital switch off”
Over the years, the lights-off moment saw entire streets, buildings, landmarks, and city skylines go dark – an unmissable sight that drew public attention to nature loss and the climate crisis.
This year – amidst the current global circumstances – we invite you to raise awareness and create the same unmissable sight online, so that the world sees our planet, the issues we face, and our place within it, in a new light.
Our goal is simple: put the digital spotlight on our planet and make it the most watched video on the world on March 27 (or beyond!) so that as many people as possible hear our message.
The next decade (and beyond) is at stake
2021 presents an incredible opportunity to push world leaders into action.
In a few months time, representatives from all over the globe will be attending the 15th meeting of the United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in Kunming, China.
The state of nature and biodiversity will be the focus for this conference, and global plans will be made for the next 10 years – decisions that will affect not only the next decade, but our future and well-being for many years to come. With enough public support, this conference could be the conference where we secure an international commitment – signed by world leaders – to end nature loss and put our planet on the path to recovery by 2030
By speaking up for nature this Earth Hour 2021, we can put the global spotlight on our planet’s issues and build the momentum needed to influence the direction of this crucial United Nations Biodiversity Conference.
