Celebrate Earth Hour!

The Department of Environment invites you to celebrate Earth Hour at the Elders Qammaq in Iqaluit on March 24 from 7:30 - 9:30 p.m. Please join in for an evening of storytelling, tea, bannock and country food, all under qulliq and candlelight.

Earth Hour is an annual event held around the world to encourage individuals, communities and businesses to turn off non-essential lights for one hour to spread awareness of environmental issues, climate change and energy conservation.

The Department of Environment encourages Nunavummiut to take part in Earth Hour and show their support for climate change awareness. Together, we can be better prepared for the potential impacts of climate change in our communities.
