    The Chancellery of the President once again joined the ‘Earth Hour’ campaign

    On March 25, as in previous years, the Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland joined the Earth Hour campaign initiated by the World Wildlife Fund.

    Earth Hour is an annual environmental campaign that takes place on the last Saturday in March. It was first initiated by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Sydney, Australia in 2007, and has since become a global event. During Earth Hour, participants turn off their non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. local time, as a symbolic gesture to raise awareness about climate change and to show support for sustainability.

    The campaign has grown in popularity and participation over the years, with millions of people from over 180 countries taking part in Earth Hour each year. In addition to individuals, many businesses, cities, and organizations also participate by turning off their lights and promoting sustainability efforts.

    The goals of Earth Hour go beyond just reducing energy consumption for one hour. The campaign aims to encourage people to make sustainable choices in their everyday lives, and to raise awareness about the impact of climate change on our planet. Through Earth Hour, the WWF hopes to inspire a global movement of people who are committed to creating a more sustainable future for our planet.

    In addition to the symbolic act of turning off lights, Earth Hour also promotes a variety of other actions that individuals and communities can take to reduce their carbon footprint and promote sustainability. These actions include using public transportation, reducing energy use at home and in the workplace, supporting renewable energy sources, and reducing waste.
