Initially launched by the World Wildlife Foundation in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now celebrated every year across the globe by switching off the lights for an hour at 8:30pm on the last Saturday in March. This year the date falls on Saturday, March 23, 2024, so if you’re home, switch off those lights or otherwise head over to the West Kowloon Cultural District where lots of environment-related and family-friendly activities and workshops will be taking place!

Hong Kong started marking Earth Hour in 2009 with prominent landmarks around the city including the IFC, the Cultural Center, and the Tsing Ma Bridge going dark for an hour. By making these conscious steps and being mindful of the way we live, the WWF hopes to create sustainable change for the environment.

This year Earth Hour’s theme is “Give An Hour For Earth” and focuses on how to create positive change by changing the way you look at food, fitness and wellness, outdoor activities, creativity, entertainment and sustainability.

An Earth Hour Carnival will take place on March 23, 2024 at Art Park, the West  Kowloon Cultural District. There will be fun educational activities all afternoon focussed on the environment before the lights-off ceremony at 8:30pm.

Otherwise, the lights-off ceremony will also be broadcast live starting at 8pm, so you can follow the action here. To pledge your support or donate to the WWF click here.
