"This year’s Earth Hour takes place at a challenging time. WWF is appalled by the escalating war and our hearts and thoughts are with everyone who is affected by this armed conflict, especially the people of Ukraine who are suffering and all those in the impacted regions."
Earth Hour was founded to unite the world in support of people and the planet. Our vision has always been to create positive environmental impacts through the power of the crowd.
In these challenging times, Earth Hour 2022 offers another moment for solidarity, and the opportunity to come together, look after each other and the one home we all share.
Nature is indispensable to building a safer, more resilient and sustainable world for all – one where everyone thrives and lives in harmony with each other. This year, as the EU prepares to adopt a new law that could become a real game-changer against the biodiversity and climate crises, we encourage you to find solace in nature and embrace it for the best it has to offer.
- The Benefits of Nature Restoration:
Ecosystem restoration is not just about saving wildlife. A growing body of evidence shows that nature contributes to our overall health and wellbeing and provides significant socio-economic benefits, including sustainable jobs and ecotourism opportunities. Protecting and restoring nature and well-functioning ecosystems is also fundamental to tackling the twin crisis of biodiversity loss and climate change.
- Looking back to 2021:
WWF's mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.
