Connect2Earth this Earth Hour

Earth Hour 2019Twelve years ago, residents in Sydney, Australia created a movement by turning their lights off for one hour for climate change. This was the beginning of Earth Hour. Last year, 188 countries and territories celebrated Earth Hour.

Earth Hour 2018-2020 is about our connection to nature and the impacts climate change will have on our food system, clean air and fresh water. This year, Earth Hour will be celebrated on Saturday, March 30 at 8:30 p.m. local time. Turn your lights off and share why nature matters using #Connect2Earth, #TakeActionBurlington and #LiveGreenBurl on social media.

What is the City or Burlington doing during Earth Hour?

Burlington’s Brant Street Pier will be lit up in green lights between 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and again from 9:30 p.m. to midnight to mark Earth Hour.

We will also do our part and unplug or reduce the use of:

  • Lighting where facilities are closed (some lights are required to be left on for safety and fire code reasons)
  • Arena refrigeration plants (compressors, condensers, brine pumps, etc.)
  • Exhaust fans/air handlers and heaters in viewing stands

Streetlights and traffic control signals will continue to operate as normal for safety reasons.

What is the City of Burlington doing year-round?
