Earth Hour

This was first published as part 4 of the February 2020 newsletter.  Now that we have fully entered this time of COVID-19, we trust that our members will use resources responsibly — virtually, in-household , or much later. As you will see in other posts, the newsletter included March and April events, an action idea, and a review of our February Annual Conference. We will be adding virtual connecting points and more.

Since 2007, people around the world have paused on a Saturday close to the Spring Equinox to ‘powerdown’ and turn off the lights from 8:30-9:30pm local time.  This year’s Earth Hour takes place on Saturday, March 28th.

NEW: Virtual, statewide gathering on the evening of Saturday, March 28th with live music, prayer, and reflection. You will find (free) registration and all the details on this Sacred Space Between Us event page.

PA IPL encourages and supports all kinds of Earth Hour gatherings — concerts, house parties, vigils, and celebrations.

Two special celebrations in Philadelphia and State College, are fundraisers for PA IPL helping us continue our programming, keeping it affordable and accessible.  There’s room for many more events across the state!

Let us help you plan yours — we’ll help you with ideas, logistics, and publicity so you can join in the movement on March 28 from 8:30-9:30pm local time!

Below are some of this year’s Earth Hour events happening across the state. Let us know if you’d like to add your event to the list growing here:  :
