Thank you for a decade of Lights Out Canada!

Schools across Canada have turned out their lights and switched on education about climate change since 2005.


Thank you for celebrating the 11th annual Lights Out Canada on April 22, 2016!

Well over 1 million students, teachers and administrators have participated in Lights Out Canada since 2005, with 300,000 participants in 865 schools across the country taking part in 2015 alone. Thank you for joining us in engaging with the science of climate change and how to take action.


Participants in Lights Out have other engaged youth and educators across Canada who want to reduce their ecological footprint. It is our generation that will be most affected by global warming and it is up to us to start changing our habits now so that we will have an inhabitable earth in the future.

The idea behind Lights Out is that small changes add up to make a big difference. It is within all of our power to commit to making those small changes together.

The Lights Out Team has compiled step-by-step instructions and comprehensive lesson plans -the tools that schools need to spread awareness about climate change and what we can all do about it.
