The Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Region 6 is encouraging all sectors to switch off non-essential lights to show our solidarity and support in celebration of Earth Hour 2022 tomorrow, March 26, 2022 at 8:30pm to 9:30pm.

This symbolic campaign which started in 2008 urges everyone to switch off lights and non-essential electrical appliances as a way of speaking up for nature and to join the global cause of raising awareness about climate change and saving energy. 

“We’ve been through a lot in the past two (2) years due to the effects of the pandemic and the series of environmental crisis that we have encountered. For us to start a positive change, we need to switch off our inaction and speak up for nature. By joining the Earth Hour, your simple act of switching off lights and other appliances is an essential part of a collective effort to save Mother Earth,” said DENR 6 Regional Director Livino B. Duran.

This year’s theme will focus on “Shape Our Future”, a critical year for everyone and our planet Earth as we move forward in pursuit of change and progress. It is up to us to #ShapeOurFuture by bringing attention to the critical issues our planet is facing today.

As such, we urge everyone to participate in #EarthHour2022, let us show how much we care about our environment and Mother Earth.
