Tonight’s the night! Show your commitment to the planet this Earth Hour. Turn off all non-essential lights at 8:30 p.m. your local time and let us know your participating using #EarthHour. Every year, millions of people around the world join the Earth Hour movement and switch off their lights for one hour to show support for protecting our planet and stopping climate change. This year, Earth Hour is at 8:30 p.m. your local time on Saturday, March 24.

Earth Hour 2018 comes at a critical moment in the fight against climate change. After the United States announced its intent to withdraw from the Paris Agreement—the world’s first truly global plan to address climate change—more than 2,600 leaders across America’s state houses, city halls, board rooms, faith organizations, and college campuses stepped up to say they are still committed to meeting America’s climate goals.

We know that it will take action from everyone—from governments and businesses to communities and individuals—to urgently reduce the emissions that drive climate change and prepare for the inevitable impacts of a warming planet, some of which we’re already experiencing.

Together, we can tackle climate change and create a future where people and nature thrive.
