Saturday, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., it’s earth hour ! We participate and you?
Since 2007, WWF has encouraged us to turn off our lights for sixty minutes , from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. An action whose main goal is to make as many people as possible aware of the problems of climate change .
In 2012, the operation brought together more than 2 billion people in 7,000 cities in 152 countries. This year, let’s be even more ambitious! Let’s become “human lights” and come together all over France. In Paris on the Esplanade du Trocadéro, in Lyon Place des Terreaux or at home, with friends, lovers, family, etc.
On the Earth Hour website , download the kit to experience the Light Power Experience . Take an Mp3 to read the file provided in the kit, a flashlight, a flash (camera, phone, etc.), a pocket mirror, a mask. animal (some are provided and can be cut if you do not have one at home) and a glow stick which will be given to you if you go to the meeting points in Paris and Lyon. At 8:30 p.m., launch the audio file in your Mp3 and let yourself be carried away …
In France, 105 cities will play the game and more than 380 monuments will turn off their lights for an hour. Why is this important? Because 95% of greenhouse gases are emitted by the energy sector and our consumption is more and more energy intensive while – in particular – 8 million French people suffer from energy poverty.
This hour without lights is above all a unifying symbolic gesture which is of course accompanied by small things done every day throughout the year to respect our planet : do not leave the lights on when we are not in a room. , switch off electrical appliances and do not leave them on standby, etc.
UNE therefore encourages you to participate in the earth hour as well . On this occasion, we are offering four candles “I am not indifferent” to the first four of you who will leave a comment under this article and who will obviously commit to turning off their lights tomorrow, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m .;)
