REMPEC participe à la campagne Earth Hour 2020 – 26/03/2020

Samedi 28 mars à 20:30

REMPEC joins forces to celebrate the Earth Hour 2020 campaign this Saturday 28 March at 8:30pm.  

A bit of History:

Started by WWF and partners as a symbolic lights-out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now one of the world's largest grassroots movements for the environment. Held every year on the last Saturday of March, Earth Hour engages millions of people in more than 180 countries, switching off their lights to show support for our planet.

Earth Hour goes beyond the symbolic action of switching lights off and has become a catalyst for positive environmental impact.

In this Super Year for Nature and Biodiversity, the UNEP/MAP-Barcelona Convention system calls for a “Super Year for the Mediterranean Sea and Coast” based on the strong commitment voiced by the Contracting Parties in the Naples Ministerial Declaration in four priority areas for action: marine litter, climate change, biodiversity and the blue economy.

On Earth Hour 2020, we ask you to raise your voice for nature and call for bold action to protect ecosystems and biodiversity in the Mediterranean region. Let us switch-off lights for an hour and pollution for life by adopting lifestyle choices that reduce plastic waste in the Mediterranean, one of the most marine litter-affected regional seas in the world.

How can you participate?

In the context of the outbreak of the new Coronavirus (COVID-19), WWF advises participants to join Earth Hour at home or online following CDC guidelines. There are many ways to participate remotely, including using the time to reflect on how you can help the environment.
