Join Earth Hour on March 27, 8:30 PM

Our fight against climate change doesn’t end in the Copenhagen Summit in Denmark last December 2009 where the outcome disappoints us. There is no concrete decision done in Copenhagen despite of the effects that all nations experience because of Climate Change including the Philippines. The issue on climate change falls on United Nation Millennium Development Goal’s # 6: Sustainable Environment. If we recall world leaders formulated and decided on the MDGs last 2000 and will last on 2015 the year that they proposed to be the deadline. Unfortunately we haven’t seen a solid stand on our leaders last December on the UN Climate Change summit in Copenhagen.

Like what Lory Tan of WWF Philippines mention during our discussions about climate change he mention that Copenhagen is not the ending of our battle but it’s the beginning where people saw the effect and started to know their responsibility and take on this challenge.

On March 27, 8:30 PM we will give one hour of our lives for Mother Earth by switching off our lights the activity is called Earth Hour. This campaign started in Sydney Australia last 2007, by 2008 nations all over the world sees its worth and participate on this advocacy, and last 2009 the Philippines emerges as the most participating country on this project. Earth Hour is a global call to action to every individual, every establishments and every community though out the world. Turning our lights off on March 27, 8:30 PM (local time) shows our support in the celebration and contemplation to our planet. It is done to raise the awareness on the climate change issue. Beyond the switching off lights every year on Earth Hour has a deeper meaning and that is giving people a voice on the future our planet and working together to create a sustainable low carbon future for Mother Earth. Earth Hour is organized by WWF. Show your support now by visiting
