What is Earth Hour, exactly?
In case it isn’t clear at this point, let me restate the meaning of Earth Hour. The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), usually known as WWF, is a global movement led by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
Individuals, cities, businesses, and social groups are encouraged to turn off non-essential electric lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., during the annual event, as a mark of environmental devotion on a specific day near the end of March Earth Hour began in 2007 as a light-off event in Sydney, Australia.
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) organizes a global event called Earth Hour. Every year, the event encourages people, towns, and businesses to switch off all non-essential lights and electrics for one hour. The event will take place on March 26th, 2022, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. It is said to represent our devotion to the environment.
The purpose is to raise awareness of our energy use, consumption and long-term effects on the environment around the world. Earth Hour is a global campaign to help our future and promote immediate change. Every day, we contribute to the global warming of our world by consuming or wasting electricity!
Is it Important?
- Earth is our home
- Without the Earth, which is the only place we can all call home, we would perish. As a result, Earth Hour plays an important role in persuading us to protect the environment.
- It is a joint effort.
- Earth Hour is open to everyone and does not assign duty to a small group of people. This demonstrates that meaningful change requires a collaborative effort, and we can all help to make it better.
- The ecosystem is degrading at an alarming rate.
- Natural disasters, pandemics, and climate change are all signs that our earth needs our help. We need to get our act together and do everything we can to improve the health of our environment, especially as global warming rates continue to grow.
What to do during Earth Hour?
Become more active
It’s difficult to care for our world (and others) if we don’t care for ourselves! So, during Earth Hour, get moving and sweating! It will benefit both your body and the environment.
- Go for a night run or a night cycle!
- While stretching, perform some candle-lit yoga.
- Pick up whatever garbage you find at your nearby park, beach, nature walk, or outdoor place (It is recommend to bring gloves, tongs, and a biodegradable trash bag). You’ll have to get your hands dirty, but you’ll have a clear conscience after you’re done.
- Make it a friendly competition: the one who collects the most trash receives a gift!
Spend time with the people you care about
Stay in and use the Hour to spend quality time with the people who matter most to you; it’s a fantastic opportunity to make lasting memories and be close to the people for whom you’re working to make the future better. You can:
- Play board games
- Rook together
- Read a book by candlelight!
Re-establish a connection with nature.
Nature is crucial not just for our health and enjoyment, but also because it provides us with clean air, water, and food. So spend the Hour outside with your friends and family (i promise you’ll sleep better!). Here are a few suggestions:
- Take a visit at the parks, beaches, and other natural attractions in the area.
- Take a hike at night.
- Go Fishing
- Camping and Stargazing are also fantastic choices
Make friends with (and give back to) your neighbors.
Only by working together, empowering one another, and creating a sense of oneness will we be able to overcome the issues that our world faces.
- Participate in an Earth Hour event near you! You can spend the Hour with people from your city, country, and around the world!
- Prepare to volunteer! Find out which organizations and initiatives in your region are in desperate need of assistance. Volunteer for park, beach, or nature clean-ups, tree-planting campaigns, community garden maintenance, or local recycling projects, for example! While doing something good, you’re sure to meet some fantastic people.
