UN Secretary-General’s message for Earth Hour

  • Mr. Antonio Guterres encourages everyone to shine a light on the pressing need for climate action by turning off our lights at Earth Hour.

The climate crisis is a clear and present danger.

But we can all do our part to safeguard our planet.

The United Nations is proud to join in the global effort to mark Earth Hour.

It’s a reminder that small changes can make a big difference.

So join me and people everywhere by switching off your lights for an hour on Saturday March 28th at 8:30 p.m., your local time.

Earth Hour is about our earth.

By turning off your lights, you can shine a light on the pressing need for climate action.

Let’s show that we are determined to protect our planet, the one home we all share. [Ends]
