Next Saturday, March 26th, another edition of Earth Hour will be celebrated, an event that elicits reflection about the impacts of climate change on the environment.
Almost 200 countries participated, and in past editions, more than 17,000 emblematic monuments and buildings were turned off.
From 20:30 to 21:30 (in each country’s time), this event, organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), invites people to turn off the lights of their homes, offices, monuments, streets, among others, to give the planet a “breath.”
As in previous years, Ternium will join this initiative, turning down totems and banners of the main access to the plants. This will take place in Planta General Savio, Ensenada, Canning, Haedo, and Florencio Varela in Argentina, Universidad, Guerrero, and Pesquería in Mexico, and Villanueva in Guatemala.
From its first edition in 2007, Earth Hour unites companies, institutions, and people in the fight against climate change and the loss of biodiversity. Over the years, it has turned into a global movement, with the participation of thousands of cities in almost 200 countries, which have turned off more than 17,000 monuments and buildings as emblematic as the Eiffel Tower or the Roman Colosseum.
“The 2022 edition takes place in a significant moment. An alliance of governments and organizations, WWF among them, ask for bigger ambition and urgent action to stop and revert the loss of nature in 2030,” points out the WWF on their official website of the movement.
This shows the plants will look like during Earth Hour.
