Switch Off. Get on the Earth Hour Map

I’m Switching Off. Are you?

Earth Hour Map 2021

Switch off to be seen and get on the Map!

Featured Initiatives 

Gharb Local Council

Gharb Local Council joined the Earth Hour movement for the first time in 2020 as part of Earth Hour Live and they did it with a bang! The picturesque Pjazza was transformed into a haven of darkness and candlelight and a stunning fjakkolata in the outskirts of the village made for a lovely night-time stroll under the stars.

This year Gharb is the first village to be plotted on the Earth Hour Map and we can’t wait to see what they’re planning. Submit your Earth Hour actions here.


Each year the Ministry for Gozo switches-off key landmarks on the island for Earth Hour. The Lights Out at the Citadel is probably the most beautiful sight to behold. In 2019 Spacelab celebrated Earth Hour Gozo in the darkness within the Citadel walls and in 2020 with Earth Hour Live. This year we will be watch the lights go out from the rooftop terrace of Queen Mary, University of London, Malta Campus.



Regions in Malta and Gozo

We thank the Regions and Local Councils that switched off for Earth Hour 2020 and look forward to welcoming them back this year.
