Small actions can have a huge impact – even something as simple as turning off the lights.
Every year on the last Saturday of March, millions of people around the world switch off their lights in solidarity for Earth Hour - a time to shine the spotlight on the challenges our planet is facing and the power of collective action.
Even though this year many of us are confined to our homes, there are still ways to come together, get involved and speak up for our planet.
Switch on: Wherever you are, this Saturday at 20.30 your local time switch off your lights and switch on your phone or your laptop to connect with other people around the world who care for our planet. This year Earth Hour is all about staying in touch.
Speak up: Talking about it won’t directly reduce your carbon footprint but it’s actually one of the most powerful things you can do. Let your friends, family and colleagues know what is important for you and why – and maybe they’ll join you in speaking up next time.
Change something in your daily routine: You are already cycling to get around and you always carry your reusable bag for your shopping but wondering what else you can do to make your everyday routine more eco-friendly? Check out some useful tips we’ve put together to help you get started.
Show the world you care: What you do matters. Even the little things can add up quickly to something bigger. And no, you don’t need to move mountains or go to some crazy extreme in order to make a change. The European Climate Pact is helping everyone take action on climate change by taking one or more concrete steps to reduce their footprint on our planet.
Inspire others to take action: You don’t need to be a superstar to inspire change. Take the lead, share your story and inspire others to do the same. Join the Climate Pact, become a Climate Pact Ambassador, and make a difference in your community. The more people that join, the bigger the impact.
