Earth Hour 2015

Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage more than 162 countries and territories worldwide. Earth Hour 2015 is on 28 March 2015, 8:30 pm.

WWF Guianas will be taking part – so watch this space for more information!  In the meantime why not visit the official website  or watch the official EH2015 video.


On 28 March, ordinary people from Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana came out to raise their voice for action on Climate Change.  Across the region, whether through candle-lit marches, concerts, or seeing the Earth Hour symbol beamed on to the Ariane rocket at the Space Centre, hundreds of people enjoyed themselves whilst also seeking ways to reduce energy use an cut their carbon footprint.
And they were not alone: from Antarctica to the International Space Station, WWF's Earth Hour brought the world closer together on Saturday by mobilising millions to highlight the need for climate action. In a year of record participation, individuals, businesses, city skylines and landmarks in 172 countries and territories switched off their lights to participate in the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment.
