Cagayan de Oro will once again participate in ‘Earth Hour’ on March 26, 2022 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. to raise awareness about climate change and global warming.
The City Local Environment and Natural Resources Office, led by Engr Armen Cuenca, will lead the Earth Hour observance, which will encourage all businesses and residents in the city to turn off the lights for one hour.
Due to the increasing consumption of fossil fuels for numerous sectors and automobiles, ‘Earth Hour’ strives to counteract or prevent rapid global warming, which will influence the warmer climate.
However, in 2011, 135 countries and 5,250 cities, including Cagayan de Oro, participated in ‘Earth Hour,’ which was continued online despite the pandemic in 2020 till this year.
As a result, CDO LGU encourages everyone to attend the event in order to achieve the desired equitable, environmentally friendly, and carbon-neutral outcomes in the coming years.
Earth Hour, which takes place every year on the final Saturday in March, asks for at least an hour to make a difference in the planet.
The World Wide Fund for Nature (W.W.F.) founded Earth Hour, which takes place every year at 8:30 p.m. and encourages individuals, communities, and businesses to switch off non-essential electric lights for one hour, as a show of dedication to the planet, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
