Earth hour 2018 - Go more green

Monday - 19/03/2018 08:06

Earth Hour is an annual environmental campaign organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The event is held annually encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights.
In 2018, with the theme of "Go more green", the event not only reminds us of saving energy but also aims to the more important goal, that is, joining hands to protect the environment and adapting to climate change. Every small action we take today can bring big impact in the future.

      With the orientation of building Hoi An as an ecological, cultural and tourist city as well as a peaceful and eco-friendly destination; Hoi An is one of the localities participating in the first Earth Hour in Vietnam (2009). The success achieved in recent years from responding to Earth Hour is gaining people’s awareness on the importance of natural environmental protection and especially getting much domestic and international tourists’ attention.
      In response to this year’s event, Hội An city will hold many practical activities including switching off non-essential lights throughout the city from 20:00 to 21:00 on March 24th 2018, art performances and paper lantern art arrangement in order to bring tourists unforgettable experiences with Earth Hour 2018.
