Earth Hour 2014: Saturday 29th March, turn the lights off for one hour from 8.30pm.
Climate change is the most serious problem we face – changing weather patterns, warming seas and melting ice are devastating for both people and wildlife. Urgent global action is needed if we are to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and safeguard our world. WWF – along with many other non-governmental organisations – has been lobbying for an effective international agreement on climate
