Cardinal Tagle urges faithful to join Earth Hour 2019

Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle urged the faithful to take part in this year’s Earth Hour on Saturday, March 30 from 8:30 to 9:30 in the evening.

“Medyo patayin muna natin ang mga appliances at mga gamit na may kuryente para pagpahingahin muna natin ang kalikasan. At ang atin pong kalikasan na makapagpapahinga ay magtatagal ang buhay para naman ang ating buhay ay sumagana,” Cardinal Tagle said in his video message for Earth Hour 2019.

Radio Veritas, the Catholic Radio Station of the Archdiocese of Manila will broadcast a special program called “Ang Banal na Oras para sa Kalikasan” on Saturday, March 25 from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. 

The program will be an occasion for reflection, prayer, and sharing of the different Ecumenical groups at Our Lady of Remedies Parish (Malate Church).

The Earth Hour activities at the Globe Circuit Events Ground in Makati will also be heard live at Radio Veritas.

Earth Hour, organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is an annual environmental campaign that aims to increase awareness on the different effects of climate change. During Earth Hour, individuals are asked to switch off their lights and some appliances that are not being used at home and in the office for an hour and shine a light on climate action.

The first Earth Hour started as a lights-off event in Sydney Australia in 2007 and the Philippines was first among Asian countries to participate in Earth Hour in 2008. (Jheng M. Prado / RCAM-AOC)
