Eco-Congregation Scotland is working with WWF Scotland to promote Earth Hour to churches and communities. Earth Hour is a simple idea that’s become a massive global phenomenon - successfully uniting an extraordinary number of people across the planet. This year’s WWF Earth Hour is on Saturday, March 31.

During Earth Hour people are encouraged to switch off their lights for one hour. But it’s not to save an hour’s electricity. It’s something much bigger. WWF’s Earth Hour is about people coming together to put the focus on this brilliant world we all share and how we need to protect it. Not just for an hour a year, but every day

WWF’s Earth Hour is the world’s largest display of hope for a bright future. From Arbroath to Edinburgh, and in every major city people all across the world will be switching out their lights for one hour to show they care about tackling climate change.

So what are you doing on Earth Hour?
