Earth Hour is a movement by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) encouraging individuals and businesses worldwide to turn off non-essential lights for one hour. It takes place every year on the last Saturday of March from 8.30pm to 9.30pm.

Beyond just switching lights off, Earth Hour also serves to increase awareness and start conversations on the climate crisis and protecting our one home, earth. 

This year’s theme is ‘Shape Our Future’, in tandem with the constant need to adapt to the ‘new normal’ brought upon by COVID-19.

If you’re looking for ideas to spend this hour with family, friends, or even by yourself, we’ve got you covered with indoor and outdoor activities to do during Earth Hour this year.


Indoors

1. Have A Homemade Candlelight Dinner

With all the lights out, Earth Hour is the perfect time to have a candlelight dinner at home. 

In the spirit of celebrating Earth Hour, here are some eco-friendly ways to prepare for your candlelight dinner:

  • The leftovers in your fridge can make a delicious meal! Check out some recipes here for inspiration.
  • Eat healthy and protect the earth with food that is sustainably grown and has lower environmental impact, which means less meat and dairy. Try these sustainable food recipes for a start.

2. ‘Camp Indoors’ With A Fort

If you have kids (or are a kid at heart), ‘camp indoors’ by building a fort! Simply gather some mattresses, blankets, and pillows, or set up a tent if you have one.

Spend time with your kids by educating them about Earth Hour or telling them bedtime stories. You can also watch movies or play board games inside!

Note: Don’t light candles near the fort and/or tent. Instead, use battery-operated light sources like flashlights or fairy lights.

3. Movie Night
