WWF-Philippines’ Earth Hour 2017 – Earth Hour Youth Camp

WWF’s (World Wide Fund for Nature) Earth Hour, the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, has been celebrated in the Philippines since 2007. And for its tenth-year anniversary, Earth Hour harnessed the power of the youth by engaging and mobilizing them to be the climate leaders of tomorrow. Last March 25, 2017, millions of Filipinos switched off their lights, saving 165 megawatts of electricity in an hour equivalent to shutting down a medium-sized coal plant and shining the light on climate action to go beyond the hour in conserving the environment.

WWF-Philippines Earth Hour 2017 won the following:

  • IABC Quill Award of Merit for Special Event
  • IABC Quill Award of Merit for Communication Program – Nonprofit Campaign
