Earth Hour has always drawn its power from the people - and this year was no exception. We showed that despite the physical distance, we were still able to unite digitally to speak up for nature louder than ever. Taking place just a few months before crucial climate and nature conferences in 2021, Earth Hour sent an unmissable message to world leaders that millions of people around the globe demand urgent action in tackling our planet’s biggest environmental challenges.
As Earth Hour rolled across the globe, millions of people came together online to speak up for nature and inspire action for a brighter future. The movement, which is in its 15th year, saw individuals, influential leaders, celebrities, youth groups and businesses shine a virtual spotlight on our planet and the role we can all play in the global efforts to address the climate and nature crises.
By continuing to destroy nature, we are the ones who are responsible for increasing our own vulnerability to pandemics, accelerating climate change, and threatening our food security. This has to change, and Earth Hour shows that millions of people around the world are demanding that change. From Indonesia to Kenya, Colombia to China, and from the US to Spain, people spoke up for nature at a time when nature needs us to reduce our impact, and we need healthy nature to support a healthy society. This is the year when we must commit to reverse nature loss by the end of this decade, building a nature positive society.
Earth Hour 2021 mobilized people across continents to raise their voices on environmental issues affecting their countries. Next year, Earth Hour will be held on Saturday 26 March 2022 at 8:30p.m. local time. (source: earthhour.org)
