Tomorrow at 8:30 – 9:30pm is Earth Hour. That means millions of people across the world will be switching off their lights for the 60 minute energy saving campaign. Led by WWF, Earth Hour is a global movement to protect our planet and has become the biggest of its kind. Last year, 188 countries and territories got involved. This year, the campaign’s focus is the loss of nature and ‘why nature matters to you’. The Earth’s biodiversity is suffering from our destructive activities and without a functioning natural environment, we will be the ones that suffer.
Raising awareness, creating change
60 Minutes won’t save the world, but that’s not the point. Earth Hour raises awareness and sparks much needed conversations around energy consumption, climate change and the state of our planet. Join the movement and show your solidarity for the cause! Switching off for Earth Hour is a symbolic acknowledgement and commitment to act now. Among its highlights, the movement has helped light up homes with solar power in India and the Philippines and has created a 2,700-hectare Earth Hour forest in Uganda.
At Jump we work together to make big changes, and Earth Hour just one example of how to empower people. From students at the University of Bristol to employees at Barclays, Jump participants have been pledging their participation. So join our energy saving campaign and step up to the challenge!
Our Jump engagement programme goes beyond the hour and helps drive long term energy reductions. Online activities provide energy saving tips, whilst switch off checklists encourage individuals to save energy – and rewards them for doing so. If you’d like to know more about how we help engage employees and students, then check out our services!
It’s your time to shine (but not those lights please!).
