About

Earth Hour™ is an initiative of WWF, and Earth Hour Global (EHG) is a registered Charity under the Charities Act in Singapore and a company limited by guarantee. The principal objective of EHG is to operate as an independent organization and charity with the aim of uniting people to protect the planet.

It is also a global event organized by the WWF – the global conservation organization to create awareness about Global Warming and the impact it creates on our planet; a global movement uniting people to protect the planet. Towards the end of March every year, Earth Hour brings together communities from across the world celebrating a commitment to the planet by switching off lights for one designated hour.

Earth Hour celebrates the second-to-last and last weekend of March which is around the time of the Spring and Autumn equinoxes in the northern and southern hemispheres respectively, which allows for near coincidental sunset times in both hemispheres, thereby ensuring the greatest visual impact for a global ‘lights out’ event.

Earth Hour 2015 is celebrated on 28th March 2015, Saturday at 8:30pm – 9:30pm in the Maldives.


Earth Hour in Maldives:

Considering the environmentally threatened islands of Maldives and their vulnerability to Climate Change, this is an opportunity for all Maldivians to join hands and campaign against, and actively take part in the battle against Climate Change.

The initiate was a group of Scout volunteers in the country in 2009, which was the year earth hour went officially worldwide. Earth Hour Maldives has been directed by our Country Manager Mr. Ahmed Nasheed, organizing the event with a huge support from The Scout Association of Maldives, collaborating with the Ministry of Environment and Energy.

The Earth Hour Maldives Country team focuses on facilitation and mediating grassroots initiatives promoting the Global Earth Hour Movement. The team acts as advocates promoting the cause throughout the Maldives and seeks support and backing from community partners and collaborators, being the main event managers in the country. To offer your support, get in touch with us and let us know what you can do to help to make Earth Hour 2015 as another greater success in the Maldives.
