The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
TWiG: March 2016
This global lights out event is due to take place on Saturday 19 March at 8.30pm.
Every year WWF's Earth Hour inspires millions of people around the world to come together and switch off their lights for one hour in a symbolic act to show they care about our brilliant planet.
WWF already works to tackle a lot of environmental challenges — like deforestation, threats to endangered species, and the impacts of climate change — but Earth Hour is a chance for everyone to say they'll do their bit to help create a sustainable future. It reminds us that together we have the power to make change happen.
Last year a record-breaking 172 countries and some of the world's most famous buildings including Big Ben, Hong Kong's skyline and the Sydney Harbour Bridge joined the global celebration.
In the UK alone, over 10 million people took part, along with over 4,800 schools, 200 landmarks and thousands of businesses and organisations.
Earth Hour is a chance for all of us to come together and send out a global message about protecting our planet.
Everyone can join the celebration for WWF's Earth Hour on Saturday 19 March 2016. For more information and to sign up please visit wwf.org.uk/earthhour
