Activities set for Earth Day

Songs and dances, band and cultural performances shall fill the hour-long lights out as part of the Earth Hour observance on March 24 at the City Hall grounds.

This happens after a parade from upper Session Road at 7 p.m., and Earth Hour messages from Rep.  Marquez Go, Mayor Mauricio Domogan, and Vice Mayor Edison Bilog.

Councilor Elaine Sembrano as health, sanitation, ecology and environmental protection committee chair and other government officials are  also expected to deliver their messages during the program.

A pledge of support shall be led by personnel of the City Environment and Parks Management Office and the ceremonial switching off of lights after a community countdown at 8:30 p.m. by officials, employees, and constituents.

An hour of songs and cultural dances will then rendered by the City Hall choir and dance troupe, with the Baguio City High School band.

The theme for this year’s Earth Hour is “#Connect 2Earth.”

The annual switch off, which has been done for 10 years now, aims to save an hour’s worth of power in the homes, streets, signs and key monuments.

Last year, an administrative order was issued for the purpose, wherein the program is focused on other energy-saving, climate-friendly and environmental-conserving measures.

World Water Day is celebrated at the same time. It revolves around the preservation and conservation of water, with the opportunity to learn more about water-related issues. The celebration is done after the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, set by the United Nations general assembly.
