Participate in Earth Hour

Employee engagementBeginner

Thank you for another inspiring Earth Hour. On March 27, 2020, millions of people from more than 190 countries took part digitally and at home in solidarity with people and our planet. Together, we raised our voices for nature – for a better and healthier future for everyone.

The Living Planet Report Canada 2017 found that half of monitored vertebrate species in this country are declining, and of those, the decline is 83 per cent. The causes? Habitat loss, pollution, unsustainable harvest, invasive species and climate change.

What to Do

Switch off your lights and #Connect2Earth to draw attention to wildlife loss in Canada and around the world.

How Will This Action Create Change?

When you participate in Earth Hour with your company, you’ll be shining a spotlight on the accelerating loss of nature and the threats this poses to us all. These are meaningful conversations that will help more people than ever learn why nature is so vital and why we must take urgent action now.

When you’ve completed this action, share your results with us for the opportunity to be featured in Living Planet @ Work communications.
