Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The event is held worldwide annually encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights.
In 2009, Hội An City was one of the localities joining the Earth Hour in Vietnam for the very first time. The success that achieved in recent years from responding to Earth Hour is gaining people’s awareness on the importance of natural environmental protection.
With a message of Lights off to turn on the future, the event not only reminds us of saving energy but also aims to a more important goal, that is, joining hands to protect environment and adapt to climate change. With each small act we do today, big impact will follow in the future.
In response to this significant event, Hội An city holds many practical activities as switching off non-essential lights throughout the city from 20:30 - 21:30 on March 25, 2017, art performance and paper lantern art arrangement that bring tourists unforgettable experiences on Earth Hour 2017.
