WWF’s Earth Hour is an annual global celebration where people switch off their lights for one hour to show they care about the future of our planet.
Since it first began in Sydney, Australia in 2007, the number of countries taking part in Earth Hour has grown to an incredible 172 countries and territories – a number that keeps rising every year.
Earth Hour is not about how much energy is saved during the hour. Rather, it’s a chance to put the spotlight on the issues facing the planet, and to inspire millions across the world to live more sustainably.
In Wales last year, an estimated half a million people took part. Iconic landmarks including the Senedd in Cardiff, National Library in Aberystwyth, Caernarfon Castle and many more joined the global lights out. 235 Welsh schools also participated.
Year on year, millions of people unite for Earth Hour to show they care about the future of our planet, but switching off the lights is just the beginning. The choices we make and actions we take past that hour can help reduce the impacts of climate change on our planet, its wildlife and future generations.
I’m really proud to support WWF’s Earth Hour this year. Like lots of people, food is an important part of my family’s life. I want my children to be able to grow up on a healthy planet, and one of the many ways we can help tackle climate change is by eating sustainably.
Earth Hour is a great change for us to come together to say that we care about the future of the planet and show that we want to do something to protect it. On Saturday 19th March, why not cook this lovely sustainable recipe and then, during the Earth – between 8.30pm and 9.30pm – enjoy your meal by candlelight with your family?
