Now that working from home is the norm, we're using even more energy in our homes. This is exactly why Earth Hour, that one hour in the year when everyone turns off their lights, is more important than ever. With Earth Hour, the WWF is aiming to make everyone aware of how much energy we all consume, and the impact of this on the environment. On Saturday 27 March, the day of Earth Hour 2021, the lights will go out in more than 180 countries between 8:30pm and 9:30pm.
Will you also enjoy this little moment of darkness to put climate change on the map across the world? Here are a few suggestions from Niko to make sure Earth Hour has a real impact: follow WWF's livestream via #EarthHourLive, plan a fun meal in the dark, polish up on your night photography or write an environmentally-conscious letter to your future self.
