Traditionally, global skylines have gone dark and millions of individuals have turned off their lights for Earth Hour as a symbolic gesture to their commitment to preserving our planet. WWF is taking a different approach this year. We are living in unprecedented times and now more than ever we need to take care of ourselves and one another, while also looking internally to see how we can contribute to reversing nature loss and protecting our planet.
In our daily shuffle, we can take for granted the many services nature provides: the beauty that inspires us and the resources that nurture us. Let’s take a moment to rediscover our wonder for the natural world and our gratitude for all it provides. Reconnecting to our curiosity and appreciation for nature can reinvigorate our environmental goals and the movement at large. That is why, for Earth Hour 2021, WWF is hosting its first-ever meditation for activists across the nation. The purpose of this meditation will be to create a moment of solitude to calm our busy minds, practice gratitude for our planet and the many services it provides and reflect on our commitment to saving the planet.
