Almost everyone who took part in last year's Earth Hour felt motivated to do more to protect the planet. Earth Hour allows a unique gateway for you, your family, and friends to explore ways to take personal actions to safeguard our world for future generations. If you haven't been part of this magnificent journey, now is the perfect time to join and speak up for nature.

We need everyone to understand that nature underpins everything. However, recent climatic events are sending a clarion call to the world. It is of utmost importance to reverse nature loss and restore our planet's health for our well-being and security.

Read on to know ways to be part of one of the world's largest movement for the environment:

1. VIRTUAL SPOTLIGHT: PLACE OUR PLANET IN A NEW LIGHT!

On the night of Earth Hour, we will be posting a hero video on all our social media pages. Our ask is simple - all you have to do is share it.

We aim to help others – those who are not environmentally conscious – to understand their crucial role in our collective effort to protect the planet.

Let us use the power of the internet to put the spotlight on our planet, the issues we face, and our place within it all.

QUICK TIPS: Four things YOU keep in mind to make this video the most-watched in India:

  1. 📲 Please share it on your Instagram and Facebook stories, re-tweet it, and send the video's YouTube link on WhatsApp. Anything to reach a wider audience.

  2. 💌 Please send it to your friends and followers on social media via Direct Messages (DM)

  3. 👩🏻‍🤝‍👨🏽 Tag your friends and family in our post's comment section or on your stories. Appeal everyone you know to put the spotlight on our planet by sharing the video.

  4. Mention these hashtags #EarthHour #Connect2Earth when you share the video in your stories.

2. Go dark for nature

Follow the tradition and switch off your non-essential lights in your home for an hour on Saturday, 27 March 2021, at 8:30 PM.

Four ways to make your switch-off moment memorable:

  1. 🎲 Open that fun board game box and enjoy a game of Monopoly, Jenga, or Ludo with your friends and family in the dark.

  2. 🕯️ Organise that much needed candle-lit dinner with your loved ones.

  3. 👪Encourage your friends and family to participate at home or virtually.
