JOIN US FOR EARTH HOUR 2017!
On the 25th of March 2017, the entire world will be commemorating Earth Hour from 8.30pm – 21:30pm (Local time).
This year’s event is an opportunity for Zambia to focus on alternative sources of energy given the impact climate change has had on our traditional sources of power. For this reason we have added the mantra “SWITCHING TO RENEWABLE, SUSTAINABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY” to this year’s theme “SHINE A LIGHT ON CLIMATE ACTION”.
In February 2017, WWF Zambia engaged the first lady of Zambia, Mrs. Esther Lungu, on Earth Hour and the impacts of climate change. Mrs. Lungu spoke passionately about the severe effects of climate change on the most vulnerable in society particularly women and girls and the need for unity in climate action.
Against this background, WWF Zambia intends to raise awareness on the need for climate action using Social and traditional media, among others. Our Young Conservation Trail blazers (YCT) will also be involved in different engaging activities including a flash mob on the days leading up to the event. Opinion influencers and decision makers around the country will be on hand to ring out the discussion as a unified front. That is why we have engaged various stakeholders including the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation (ZESCO), Muhanya Solar, Sunny Money, Energy Regulation Board, Zambia Parliamentary Conservation Caucus (ZPCC) and Vitalite among many others.

The campaign will culminate into the biggest concert of the year, with a massive powerhouse of Entertainment featuring Slap D, Wezi, Kantu, Nora, Maureen Lilanda, Amayenge, Khuzie plus many more amazing performers on the 25th of March from 14hrs till 21:30 at Queens Mead in Long Acres, Lusaka. Tickets for the concert are only 50kwacha at the gates and 30Kwacha presale from the WWF Zambia Country Office in LongAcres.
Sign up here to purchase your ticket and show your support for climate action.
Together we can change climate change!
