    On Saturday (27 Mar 2021), in hundreds of cities around the world, as well as in dozens in Poland, at 8.30 PM per hour, the lights went out as part of the WWF action ‘EarthHour’. The action has been taking place since 2007 every last Saturday in March.

     

    This year in Poland, environmentalists from the WWF want to pay attention to the protection of the Baltic Sea. On their website, you can sign a petition to Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki for our country to take the lead on the international stage in achieving the good environmental status of the Baltic Sea, concerning the framework directive of HELCOM (The Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission). Environmentalists are also calling for sustainable fishing in the water.
