  • Earth Hour
    • In its seventh year, Earth Hour began in Sydney, Australia and has grown to a global movement observed in over 150 countries and territories. Every year the City of Winnipeg joins this global campaign to raise awareness for environmental issues and contemplate the most important thing we have in common - our planet – by turning our lights out from 8:30 - 9:30 pm on Saturday, March 25 in solidarity with the international community.
  • Earth Day
    • Earth Day is an annual event celebrated worldwide on April 22 whereby various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. Check out a list of local events happening in Winnipeg for this year’s Earth Day
