Earth Hour is an international action during which WWF calls to turn off the light for one hour as a sign of concern for the future of the planet.
Today, Earth Hour is the most massive environmental action on the planet. It is attended by more than 2 billion people around the world in 188 countries, the illumination of more than 18,000 architectural monuments goes out. It is important to understand that the purpose of the action is not to save electricity. This is a symbolic public action, thanks to which every year more and more people learn about the problem of depletion of natural resources.
In 2020, the International Earth Hour took place for the 14th time (in Russia – for the 12th time).
Prioksko-Terrasny Reserve joins the action for the sixth time. On March 28, the illumination of all objects of the reserve was turned off for an hour from 20:30 to 21:30.
We urge everyone to support the international campaign of the World Wide Fund for Nature. To do this is not so difficult: in the evening, from half past eight to half past nine you just need to turn off the lights and household appliances.
The World Wildlife Fund has also prepared a program for virtual participation in the action, which every Russian can join without leaving home, while becoming part of a global event and have a great time on Saturday night.
