About Hearth Hour
Earth Hour is organized by WWF, whose mission is to stop the degradation of the Earth's natural environment and build a future where people live in harmony with nature. Last year’s Earth Hour became the biggest Earth Hour ever, with a record 128 countries and territories participating in the global display of climate action. Lights from Asia Pacific to Europe and Africa to the Americas were switched off. People across the world from all walks of life turned off their lights and came together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet.
