In observance of Earth Hour today, March 30, 2019, between 8:30-9:30pm in the Philippines, Senator Loren Legarda said that participating in the event shows that everyone is capable of taking steps to protect our planet.
“Every year, nations, communities, industries, and individuals participate in the Earth Hour, switching off non-essential lights for an hour. Last year, 188 countries and territories participated and more than 17,900 landmarks and monuments around the world switched off their lights during Earth Hour. This shows that we are all capable of taking action to protect the Earth and act against climate change in our own individual way,” said Legarda, Chair of the Senate Committee on Climate Change and UNISDR Global Champion for Resilience.
