The hour the world goes dark: Earth Hour 2018

23rd March 2018 in Know How

On March 24th at 8:30pm, the world will be shrouded in darkness! Millions of people will turn off the lights for an hour across the world.

Why? Well, it’s ‘Earth Hour’ – an idea that was launched by WWF Australia way back in 2007. The simple idea quickly became a worldwide event: people around the globe turn the lights off for one hour and unite in sending an unmistakable message calling for better environmental and climate protection! Today, Earth Hour is the biggest global environmental event.

We’re hoping our 60,000 Loxone Smart Home owners can help make Earth Hour 2018 even bigger!

Earth Hour 2018 - Statistik

These are the impressive stats of Earth Hour in 2017. In addition to the Sydney Opera House, the Colosseum in Rome, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, countless office buildings and private households joined together to create a symbol of environmental protection.

Climate protection, sustainability, and environmental protection are topics to which we here at Loxone also feel committed. Earth Hour is a great idea to draw attention to a global problem.

We firmly believe that each and every one of us can contribute to protecting our planet every single day. Especially since, as the owner of a Loxone Real Smart Home, it’s really easy to do!
