Celebrating Earth Hour
What can you do to take part in this Earth Hour?

Join us in creating the Biggest Hour for Earth on 25th March - switch off your lights and spend 60 minutes doing something positive for our planet! 

Don't know where to start? Read on for a few ideas of what you can do!

Switch off

Remind your friends and family to switch off their non-essential lights and all other unnecessary electrical appliances during Earth Hour and beyond.

Social media

Like, share and follow WWF-Viet Nam Fanpage to get the latest updates of Earth Hour 2023.

Learn more about our planet

A little extra knowledge can go a long way - awareness is after all the first step before action. So spend the Hour deepening your understanding of our planet, the threats we face, and what you can do to help!

Reconnect with our planet

Spending time in nature is one of the best ways to appreciate our planet and be inspired to protect it - so embark outdoors with your friends and family!

Want to stay inside? We've got a few ideas for you too. You can find 30 ways to give an Hour for Earth in this handy Instruction Sheet.

Restore out planet

Break a sweat and get your hands dirty for sixty minutes to keep our planet clean and green! Feel good, do good - it's a win-win.

Inspire others to care about our planet

Earth Hour has always been powered by the people - and you don’t need to be a Greta Thunberg or David Attenborough to inspire others to act.  So whether it starts with your significant other, your children, or your community, you are playing a crucial role in getting 8 billion people to care about our planet!

If you have

  • Candlelit dinner: Cook a vegeterian feast and enjoy it with your loved ones in the candle lights!
  • Go stargazing: How long has it been since the last time you enjoyed a romantic and peaceful stargazing evening just like when you were a kid? This is a great opportunity to put your phone away and revive the memories with your friends and family!
  • Night walk or jogGo on a night cycling adventure and explore your neighbourhood with your buddies. Take a ride under the night sky, enjoy the cool breeze and appreciate nature all around you.
  • Catch the lights-off moment! Find a good vantage point of your city skyline and watch the lights-off moment at 8:30 pm your local time! If you're into photography, try some time-lapse shots and share with your friends, tagging #EarthHour2023, #TheBiggestHourForEarth
  • Stay in! Organise a night of board games or book readings.
  • Movie night! Whether eco films, nature documentaries, or even Hollywood blockbusters set in the outdoors, take an hour or two to appreciate nature in all its glory! You can also check out WWF's Our Planet series on Netflix to explore natural wonders, unique creatures in wildlife, and the major issues that are threatening their lives!
