“Lights Out” for Climate and Peace in “Earth Hour” – World –

Either Athens or Zurich: the counters must be turned at 8.30 pm

A day after the climate strike, WWF’s traditional “Earth Hour” on Saturday, which begins at 8:30 p.m., is drawing attention to the need for action on climate issues. At this time, landmarks, cities, international communities, public buildings, businesses and millions of people in their homes turn off their lights to send a signal to politicians for an hour. The focus this year is not only on protecting the planet, but also on peace.

With the slogan “Lights Out for a Peaceful and Energetic Planet,” the 2022 campaign also features a desire for peace in Ukraine, Europe, and the world at large, according to WWF Austria. The NGO invites you to report it on social networks using the hashtags #LichtAus and #EarthHour. The lights will go out in offices, homes and apartments, as well as famous landmarks such as Big Ben in London and Crest the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro. In Austria, all the provincial capitals and landmarks such as Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, the Golden Roof in Innsbruck or the Pöstlingberg Basilica in Linz are involved. The idea for Earth Hour was born 15 years ago in Australia by the WWF Environment Foundation.
