Earth Hour

Earth Hour is a global campaign to encourage individuals, businesses and governments to protect and take positive actions for the environment.

From its inception as a single-city initiative in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into a worldwide sustainability movement where hundreds of millions of people from every continent come together to acknowledge the importance of protecting our planet and celebrating that commitment.

Preventing a Global Temperature Rise

Floods, droughts, hotter summers or colder winters - climate change is causing unusual weather in many parts of the world. If we are to avoid catastrophic climate change, we must ensure that the average increase in global temperature stays well below 2oC. To achieve this, global emissions of greenhouse gases must decrease by at least 80% (below 1990) levels by 2050.

WWF is working with governments and industries to improve energy efficiency and reduce global energy consumption by half through the use of renewable energies.
