Earth Hour is WWF flagship global environmental movement.
Earth Hour has become one of the world's largest grassroots movements for the environment, inspiring individuals, communities, businesses and organisations in more than 180 countries.
Historically, Earth Hour has focused on the climate crisis, but more recently, it has strived to bring the pressing issue of nature loss to the fore.
The aim is to create an unstoppable movement for nature, as it did when the world came together to tackle climate change.
Under PM @ImranKhanPTI's leadership, Pakistan has become an active participant in climate-friendly initiative.
