Earth Hour

The well-being and health of our supporters and staff is our top priority. Given the unprecedented circumstances of the COVID-19 outbreak, Earth Hour 2020 will be a purely digital event. There are many ways to participate remotely, including using the time to reflect on how you can help the environment.
The need to unite and protect our planet has never been greater. Nature is the planet’s life support system and gives us everything we need; from the air we breathe, the water we drink, to the food we eat. Now more than ever, we must unite and protect the one home we all share.

The world needs a New Deal for Nature and People to finally bend the curve of biodiversity loss by 2030 and the EU must be a leader in this. Credible EU leadership at UN CBD COP15, where a global plan to protect and restore nature should be agreed, hinges on coherent domestic action. By bringing a strong EU 2030 Biodiversity Strategy to the table, expected in April 2020, the EU can truly lead the way.
