Our past work

Mobilising for policy change

Politicians are nominated to represent and protect people’s interest, and they react to what people care about.

Public mobilisation is therefore vital to achieve real political change. Through the WWF network, we involve hundreds of thousands of people in petitions, public stunts and e-actions that have a powerful impact on key political decisions.

What is Earth Hour?
It is the biggest environmental awareness campaign ever seen!

When is it?
Earth Hour takes place once every year. On the last Saturday of March. Learn more about Earth Hour 2018.

What's the aim?
To raise environmental awareness and get us doing small things in our daily lives that together can have huge impacts.

What does it involve?
Simply turning off your lights for 1 hour. Earth's hour.

How useful is this?
Earth Hour is a highly "visible" symbolic act.
One that millions of people can easily join in with.
And one that allows you to have fun while sending out a serious message to our politicians and governments, that says:
"I care about my planet!"

We made sure that their voice was heard at the highest level of the European Commission, and by their own governments. In December 2016 the European Commission decided against the revision of the Birds & Habitats Directives.
