The city of Murcia will turn off the lights of its most famous monuments for an hour this Saturday as a symbolic act against climate change
For one hour this Saturday, between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., the world will turn off its lights for Earth Hour 2022, to raise awareness of the effect of energy use on the environment.
It is the sixth consecutive year that Jumilla will participate in the celebration of Earth Hour, which is more of a symbolic gesture to draw attention to the problem of climate change, “a symbol with which we want to remember that nature is the life support of the system planet, which provides us with everything we need, from the air we breathe to the water we drink and the food we eat,” says the councilor for the environment, Juan Gil “We must defend it now to protect the health of our planet and, therefore, our own health and well-being.”
Over the years, the campaign has become one of the largest environmental movements in the world, giving voice to millions of people and thousands of companies and institutions in more than 200 countries.
