Shape the future

“2022 is set to be a critical year for the future of our planet. We are calling on world leaders to take this unique opportunity and secure a nature-positive world by 2030 so that there is more nature by the end of the decade than there is today. 

Now is our biggest chance to course correct towards a safer and better future for all. We must halt and reverse the loss of biodiversity across the globe by the end of the decade. We need transformational changes to the way we produce and consume food, energy and other natural resources. We want an end to nature being taken for granted. By taking part in Earth Hour, people from all over the world are showing their support and building momentum for a nature-positive world”

What is Earth Hour?

Starting as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour has grown to become one of the world’s largest grassroots movements for the environment. It’s been more successful than we ever imagined - inspiring and empowering individuals, communities, businesses and organizations in 190 countries and territories to take actions for climate change and nature loss.

While climate change remains a vital issue for our planet, we believe the spotlight must also focus on the accelerating loss of nature and the threats this poses to us all. It is ever more important to raise awareness that preserving nature is the critical foundation of a healthy planet and an immediate, powerful and cost-effective solution to climate disaster and pandemic prevention.

Earth Hour 2021 is not just a symbolic event, but a moment to take action for a lifetime! It’s time to Speak up for Nature - Nature Positive, for Us, and for our Planet.

Earth Hour then and now

As we continue adapting our lives to the impacts of COVID-19 and the catastrophic events of the past two years, Earth Hour 2022 aims to signal the end of “business as usual” and herald a new era that puts people and the planet first.

This year’s Earth Hour offers the opportunity for the global community to make their voices heard in this pivotal year and demand a nature-positive future. 2022 is also the year world leaders gather for the second part of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity COP15 and decide on a new global action plan for nature, making 2022 a once-in-a-decade opportunity to create a biodiversity framework which halts and reverses nature loss for generations to come. Earth Hour 2022 will be a key moment for us all to unite and show our resolve to shape a nature positive future.
