Earth Hour For Universities

What your university can do for Earth Hour:
Help us make a statement for our planet seen around the world.

At 8:30 p.m. your local time on Saturday, March 28, 2020, millions of people around the globe will turn off their non-essential lights for one hour during Earth Hour to show solidarity for and a strong commitment to climate action and protecting our planet.

From the beginning, universities across America have enthusiastically embraced Earth Hour—turning off lights in campus buildings and urging their students to participate. This single act is provoking discussion and building momentum towards a renewable future.

Earth Hour is a great opportunity for your university to demonstrate your commitment to the environment, showcase your existing environmental work and engage with your campus communities. This year, we're asking everyone to turn off your lights and join us in a global movement to recommit to nature by calling for better protection of our wildlife, rivers, oceans, forests and climate. Here are some tips for how your university can support Earth Hour 2020:

  • Sign up and show your support for a sustainable future for our planet
  • Switch off non-essential lights at 8:30 p.m. your local time on Saturday, March 28, 2020
  • Spread the word and help us reach as many people as possible. You can promote Earth Hour to your students, staff, suppliers and contacts through your website, newsletters, social media channels or any other way you like!
  • Encourage other landmarks and local groups in your community to plan their own Earth Hour events
