Earth Hour — 2018: Vote for nature!
March 24 will be the annual environmental action ‘Earth Hour – 2018’, organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The action is designed to draw attention to the need for responsible attitude to the nature and resources of the planet. The event will begin at 8:30 pm local time.
A week before the action, on March 18, presidential elections will be held in Russia, so ‘Earth Hour – 2018’ will be held under the slogan ‘Vote for Nature’. Participants will be able to vote for the most important environmental initiatives and take part in a collective message to the elected president.
As part of the ‘Earth Hour’ action, entertainment and environmental education activities will be organized in many Russian cities. In Moscow the action is held jointly with the Department of Nature Management and Environmental Protection in Moscow. The campaign will end with a holiday in Zaryadye Park, which will be attended by officials and stars; traditionally the illumination of key monuments, attractions and iconic buildings will be turned off. So, already for the third time the business centre ‘Moscow City’ will join the action.
