Earth Hour 2020 goes digital in solidarity with people and the planet

  • Several countries prepare to organize Earth Hour virtually to ensure public safety and show solidarity for those affected by COVID-19
  • Celebrities, environmentalists and nation heads unite and pledge their support online for  nature and people

On Saturday, 28 March, Earth Hour, one of the world’s largest grassroots movements for the environment, will once again inspire individuals, businesses and organizations in over 180 countries and territories to renew their commitment to the planet.

In the midst of the global COVID-19 health crisis, Earth Hour marks a moment of solidarity for the planet as global communities unite and organize events digitally. Ireland will commemorate Earth Hour 2020 completely online.

How YOU can get involved!

We at Scouting Ireland have partnered up with Deirdre Lane, an Environemental Awareness Consultant and Founder of ShamrockSpring, a Kildare based voluntary organisation of people who recognize the need for an alternative vision for society which puts people and the natural environment at the core of political decision-making.

We have created an Activity Sheet and Quiz for you to do in the build up to Earth Hour!

During Earth Hour, there are many things YOU can do… whether it be talking to you family with no mobile devices for an hour or simply just switching off all your lights and relaxing!

If Gaelic Folklore interests you then look for no further, Join Karen with the Moon Mná Facilitators for an hour long Meditation to celebrate a very special version of the annual phenomenon that is Earth Hour. Switch off your lights and electricity and sit under the Crescent Moon by your phone as she tells the story of Danu, Mother Earth in these Celtic Isles. As Karen leads you in a heartwarming Meditation, she and the Moon Mná Facilitators will offer healing energies to all of our families, communities and our countries and most importantly Mother Earth during this hour.
