Accordingly, the Ministry of Industry and Trade proposed that organizations, agencies, establishments, people and businesses turn off unnecessary electrical equipment during the event for one hour from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on March 23. Units under the Vietnam Electricity Group (EVN) are responsible for ensuring power grid safety during the campaign.

The event aims to create awareness of people taking responsibility for a sustainable future by turning the lights off.

The Earth Hour Campaign 2024 will convey a message that urges the community not only to save electricity, save energy, and protect the environment for just one hour, but also that everyone, every community, and each business must regularly practice throughout the year should make saving electricity and energy a habit.

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It encourages individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights, for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Held annually on the last Saturday of March, the Earth Hour engages supporters in more than 190 countries and territories, all taking action to ensure a brighter future for people and the planet./.
