On Saturday, March 28 at 20:30 will be the 13th edition of the international action "Earth Hour" initiated by the World Wide Fund for Nature. Its goal is to encourage people to save energy and to reflect on climate change. Last year, 187 countries took part in the initiative, including Poland. The most important Polish objects and monuments plunged into darkness for several dozen minutes.
Also this year, local governments declare their willingness to join the event, which will be held under the slogan "Let's not stop rivers, let them flow". In Elbląg, the lighting of the Cathedral will be turned off. St. Mikołaj, Brama Targowa, District Court at Plac Konstytucji, Viaduct 100th Anniversary of Regaining Independence and City Hall. Włocławek will turn off the illumination on the steel bridge, and in Gorzów the Philharmonic, Dominanta, Nova Park and Askana will go out.
“Observing the growing role of light in urban tissue, it is worth paying attention to the fact that most local governments focus on energy-saving technologies. Earth Hour is a good opportunity to remind residents about the importance of a reasonable approach to energy consumption, and the authorities how to be optimally in this reality in terms of costs,” Sebastian Biela, vice president of Energia Polska, commented.
