Earth Hour

In Uganda, the world’s first Earth Hour Forest was allocated with 2700 hectares of land, challenging Ugandans to fill it with 500,000 trees to fight against the 6000 hectares of deforestation that occurs in the country every month. Standard Chartered Bank (250,000 trees), the Ugandan Minister of Water Environment (1,000 trees) and many individuals have taken on the challenge.

Across the globe, Earth Hour’s IWIYW campaign on YouTube has attracted four million participants and received more than 200,000 commitments from individuals, businesses, organisations and governments, all taking their action for the action for the planet far beyond the hour.
