Join the Movement


Earth Hour is a universal message of hope and action to protect the one thing that unites us all - the planet. Together our actions add up.


More than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2011 alone, sending a powerful message for action on climate change. It also ushered in a new era with members going Beyond the Hour to commit to lasting action for the planet. Without a doubt, it’s shown how great things can be achieved when people come together for a common cause.

Join the world for Earth Hour 2012 by switching off your lights for 1 hour at 8:30pm your local time on Saturday, March 31st.

                               


I know what I'll be doing during my hour - I will be at the Alaska Zoo, participating in our 1st annual Earth Hour at the Alaska Zoo!  At this event, the public is invited to participate in an hour-long candlelit stroll through the Zoo.  Youth from the community will be in attendance to share why taking action against climate change is important to them.  The hour will end behind-the-scenes at polar bear where we will turn on the lights and toss our polar bears some yummy treats for all to watch them enjoy!  Wish you were in AK to take part?  I don't blame you!  One of the awesome things about this event is that not only is this only the second official Earth Hour event in all of the great state of Alaska, but it's also the first ever in Anchorage! We're adding a city to the map! How cool is that?!

So, what will you be doing during your hour?
