The Philippines joins the world in observing the 2011 Earth Hour. The Earth Hour 2011 will stand as witness for Filipinos’ solidarity. Last year, the Philippines ranked first worldwide in terms of total number of cities and towns that participated in Earth Hour. Around 15 million Filipinos in 1,000 cities and towns all over the country participated in Earth Hour 2010. For 2011, lets aim for rank 1 for two year in a row.
Lets bring back darkness all over the Philippines, for a good reason, that is, as we join the world in observing the Earth Hour 2011. Let us make a big difference, even for only an hour. Everybody is encouraged to switch off his/her lights at 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 26, 2011.
2011 marks a key difference from past switch-offs, for the focus shall be on what transpires beyond the hour itself. With climate change issues becoming more critical, WWF-Philippines is going beyond Earth Hour by launching a year-long climate change information and education campaign for Filipinos to live by Earth Hour’s carbon-friendly principles not for 60-minutes – but for the rest of their lives.
