Pakistan, like the rest of the globe, will mark the annual ‘Earth Hour’ on Saturday night with the theme “Give an Hour for Earth.”
Millions of people around the world will mark the occasion by turning out their lights for one hour. To safeguard the environment, many people throughout the world can cut carbon emissions by turning off superfluous lights and electrical gadgets for one hour during Earth Hour.
Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, has requested that all lights be turned out for one hour tonight at 8 p.m. He stated that environmental action will be performed on a huge scale during Earth Hour.
“We must all contribute to climate action.” “I call on all residents throughout the world to switch off their lights for one hour at 8 p.m. local time,” he stated.
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) initiated the event in 2007, and it has become an annual tradition to raise awareness about climate change.
It is worth noting that the United Nations observes Earth Hour every year on the night of the final week of March around the world, including Pakistan, with the goal of encouraging people to consider the harmful consequences of pollution and other environmental problems.
