Join Earth Hour on March 29 for a Better Future
This Earth Hour, WWF-Canada asks people around the world to stand united for a future where climate change is no longer a threat. On Saturday, March 29 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., WWF urges Canadians to take part in this global movement and switch off their lights for a #momentofdarkness and reflect on the choices all of us can make for a better future.
“Canada as a nation can play a big part in the climate change solution. Canadians and Canada have the opportunity to choose a future where climate change is no longer a threat — to choose a future with clean air, vibrant lands and waters. We can all learn from the leadership of cities like Vancouver and Edmonton, Canada’s Earth Hour City Capitals, to create a better future for Canada.”
- David Miller, WWF-Canada President and CEO
Canadian celebrities – including Jason Priestley, William Shatner, Chris Hadfield, Roberta Bondar, Jill Barber, Amy Jo Johnson, Raine Maida and Adam Korson - and citizens have uploaded videos to share what they’ll be thinking about during Earth Hour, including their vision for future where climate change is no longer a threat. WWF invites all Canadians to join the conversation by uploading their own videos, tweet about their #momentofdarkness or pledge support towards climate change action.
Mapping Canada’s renewable energy potential
Canada has some of the greatest renewable energy potential of any country on Earth. By 2050, WWF believes our nation could-and should-be powered by green energy. WWF has teamed up with the Waterloo Institute of Sustainable Energy to launch a project to map renewable energy potential across the country. The resulting map will it will allow our leaders to make smart energy choices for Canada.
