Earth Hour Philippines 2015 #EarthHour2015 #GivetheGiftofLight #PowerUpTheFuture #EarthHourPHL
Sounds scary! Yes, it is if we don't know how to care of our Mother Earth...we will surely SUFFER.
Since 2008 when WWF-Philippines launches the Earth Hour, I take part in this advocacy and I believe that in switching OFF our light we can make help solve our energy problem.
Earth Hour's global focus is to use the power of the crowd and by engaging the people to make a change to CLIMATE CHANGE.
Our country really suffered a lot with so much typhoon and has had to adapt to climate change ahead than most other countries. We are called to make a "BAYANIHAN"(a fellowship), to join hand in hand spreading the effect of climate change.
For this year, EARTH HOUR is focusing their advocacy in giving light to those people that up to now are still living in the dark due to lack of access to electricity, to give the GIFT OF LIGHT.
Until now, we still have places here in the Philippines that uses kerosene just to light up their houses. EARTH HOUR will distribute solar-powered lamps to 200 families on the island of Beton, Northern Palawan. So that children will be able to study at night without taking a risk of fire and to help them to stop from buying expensive kerosene.
In the spirit of promoting a meaningful climate solution, we are called especially the FAMILY to stay at home and observe the switching hour through low carbon means.
Or you can join the SWITCH-OFF EVENT at Felcris Centrale in celebrating EARTH HOUR.
