Quang Ninh responded to the movement in 2016

  As planned, light turn-off will be from 8.30pm to 9.30 pm on March 25 in the hopes of sending a powerful message promoting a brighter future for our planet and its inhabitants, stressing the importance of living sustainably. This year’s campaign aims to encourage the community to use energy economically and effectively.

A number of responding activities such as meeting, photo exhibition on climate change and saving energy, art performances, marching with bikes, etc. will be held in Ha Long city on the same day.

Previously, on March 5, the Ministry of Industry and Trade in collaboration with WWF, the Embassy of Danish in Viet Nam and Viet Nam Electricity (EVN) launched Earth Hour 2017 campaign in Hanoi under the theme “Turn off to turn on the future”.

Earth Hour is a global event organized by WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature, also known as World Wildlife Fund) and is held on the last Saturday of March annually, asking households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change.

The campaign has received responses from over 7,000 cities in 172 countries.

In recent years, the Earth Hour has appealed people to showing their determination to prevent climate change by turning off lights.

This year marks the 9th time Earth Hour event held in Vietnam. Last year’s campaign saved 450,000kw per hour, 3 times higher than in 2009, when Vietnam hosted the first event. Quang Ninh also saved about 100,000 KWh of electricity during Earth Hour in 2016./.
