When the Eiffel Tower in Paris disappears into darkness or the Brandenburg Gate turns off its lights - that's Earth Hour. At Saturday, March 30 at 8:30 pm one hour will be dedicated to our environment. Millions of people, cities and landmarks around the world will switch off their lights with the aim of making a statement for more climate protection and the preservation of a living planet.
The action should be a wake-up call and encourage a rethink. Early action is necessary in the context of environmental protection to avert future environmental and natural disasters and to promote the energy transition.

Green electricity for the energy transition

The switch to sustainable energy supply is the linchpin in the energy transition. Grüner Strom Label e.V. has been promoting and certifying green electricity for 20 years now. For each kilowatt hour of certified green electricity, a fixed amount goes directly into great energy transition projects. A total of 55 million euros have already been invested in 1,300 projects. Every consumer has the opportunity to to switch to trustworthy green electricity and additionally do something for the energy transition.

Polarstern sets an example by candlelight

The energy turnaround can only succeed if we work together, which is why Earth Hour projects are so important for sending out a signal for a rethink.
For this purpose, Polarstern switches off the lights and ignites a unplugged concerts the candles: "As an energy supplier, we have a major impact on the climate. We accept this responsibility, develop new products from renewable energies, stand for an alternative economic model with the common good economy and awaken people's energy awareness; for example with an unplugged concert by candlelight on the occasion of Earth Hour," Florian Henle, founder and CEO of Polarstern, explains the campaign.

In addition to energy providers, support for Earth Hour extends through companies to cities and communities. Sparda Bank in Munich is one example from the corporate sector. In addition, not only Paris and Berlin turn off the lights, but also the German city of Bonn is getting involved in Earth Hour. The municipal buildings supplied with Green Electricity certified, disappear punctually at 20:30 in the darkness.

Throughout Germany, other projects and events are taking place as part of Earth Hour. You can access an overview from wwf here.
