Event Bhutan Observed Earth Hour 2020

Earth Hour is an event observed annually to spread the awareness of environmental issues in our global and local communities. It is world’s biggest switch off event observed to encourage individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights, for an hour.

As a part of global initiative, Bhutan joined over 182 countries to observe this year’s Earth Hour to unite people in addressing issues of environment and climate change by voluntarily switching off lights for an hour from 8:30 to 9:30pm on 22nd April 2020 to observe the day in symbolic display to show our commitment to the planet.

Earth Hour's 60 minutes are an opportunity to adopt a shifting of the consumption culture, and behaviour change towards sustainability. Though switching off lights can result in a slight dip in electricity usage, the action is supposed to be largely symbolic. The event is observed with individuals, communities, businesses, governments and Organizations in the country by voluntarily switching off the light for an hour.
