Please Consider Participating in Daylight Hour 2019

Please consider turning off your lights and participating in Daylight Hour 2019

On June 21, 2019, offices all over the world will turn off their lights in day-lit spaces for one hour and post to social media about their involvement. Over 800 organizations in 17 countries participated last year, demonstrating that daylight can light our workspaces, save money, and reduce our environmental impact.

Daylight Hour is a great way to engage your community and demonstrate your environmental commitment. Small steps, like Daylight Hour, can build awareness about how our buildings use energy. Join us and take the first step toward reducing your environmental impact.

Participation is easy - it only takes a couple of minutes to sign up, and all you have to do is turn off the lights in your day-lit spaces from Noon to 1pm on June 21. The Daylight Hour provides templates for internal and external communication, as well as social media tools - so make sure to showcase your involvement.

You can find more information on our website,, which features past participants, educational resources, and engagement tools for you to share with friends and colleagues.

As with last year there is no institutional registration so everyone please sign up whatever space you're having participate.
