Switch off for your world.
In the UK, every year millions of us take part in Earth Hour. By making pledges to help our planet, and by being part of a movement of hundreds of millions more around the globe, we can show we’re fighting for our world. We are the first generation to know we are destroying the world. And we could be the last that can do anything about it. We have the solutions, we just need our voices to be heard.
Earth Hour gives a powerful voice to people everywhere who want to put the world on the path to recovery. The world’s biggest landmarks – such as the Sydney Opera House, Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, and Edinburgh Castle – switch off lights as a visual display of their commitment. And you can switch off too.
Join the global movement this Earth Hour – switch off your lights and be part of the change.
Last year over 10 million people across the UK took part to send a clear message: we’re fighting for our world. Earth Hour is organised by WWF (World Wildlife Fund).
Join the St James’s Eco team at Piccadilly Circus.
The main advertising billboard at Piccadilly Circus is turned off for the hour.
Let us know you are able to come: email Petra at email@example.com. We will have some placards, candles, and will be singing Taize chants.
