WWF’s Earth Hour 2017, Saturday, 25th March, 8.30pm

It’s not just about an hour of darkness, it’s about a brighter future. Earth Hour is having a real and lasting impact beyond the hour.
Sign up today and show your support for tackling climate change and the switch to a better energy future.

Earth Hour is not about how much energy is saved during the hour. Rather, it’s a chance to put the spotlight on the issues facing the planet, and to inspire millions across the world to live more sustainable.

How will you make Earth Hour matter?

It’s been the hottest year on record for the third year in a row and nearly 1 in 6 species are now at risk of extinction from climate change.
That’s why we want you to join millions of organisations across the planet and switch off your lights on 25 March at 8.30pm to show that you want action on climate change.

The leadership that organisations provide in helping tackle climate change is hugely important. Earth Hour offers a great opportunity to involve your colleagues and customers in the work you are doing to tackle climate change as well as enabling you to engage with schools, councils and media in your area.

On Saturday 25th March 2017 at 8.30pm, thousands of people from across Scotland will join millions around the world in turning off their lights for one hour in a huge, symbolic show of support for action on climate change and for a more sustainable future. In 2016, all Local Authorities in Scotland signed up and took part and since it first began in Sydney Australia in 2007, the number of countries taking part in Earth Hour has grown to an incredible 172 countries and territories – a number that keeps rising every year!

Fife Council has signed up to Earth Hour 2017 and plans to turn off the lights in key buildings in the largest towns in Fife for 1 hour.

These buildings are:

Bankhead Central, Glenrothes

Fife House, Glenrothes

Town House, Kirkcaldy

City Chambers, Dunfermline

County Buildings, Cupar

Please join in, tackle climate change, reduce carbon emissions, save energy, and your money.

1st March 2017 update

With Earth Hour less than a month away, here’s an update on what’s happening.

 1. All 32 of you are getting involved this year, which is wonderful.

2. From your reporting forms, I’ve calculated that collectively you will be responsible for 68 switch offs. These include your own council buildings, as well as landmarks such as the Wallace Monument, and town centres such as Perth High Street. This 68 does include a few unconfirmed landmarks – it would be great if you could get back to me about these.

3. Over 1152 schools are signed up, I appreciate your role in this.
