JAVEA NEWS | XÀBIA WILL BE PARTICIPATING IN 'EARTH HOUR' FOR ANOTHER YEAR

Xàbia will be observing 'Earth Hour' for another year on Saturday 30th March, a symbolic action that aims to draw attention to the problem of climate change whilst also promoting sustainable lifestyles.

The Ayuntamiento de Xàbia will be joining more than 420 other municipalities across Spain as well as some 7,500 citizens who have pledged to turn off their lights between 8.30pm and 9.30pm, joining almost 190 countries across the world which will be doing the same.

On Saturday evening the town hall building in the heart of the historic centre of Xàbia will switch off its lights and the council will be encouraging citizens to join it which turning off their lights in homes and businesses for an hour from 8.30pm. Several other personal challenges are also proposed such as a day without meat, a day with using plastic and a day with generating CO2 emissions.

Earth Hour began with a single lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007 and has since become a worldwide movement organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), encouraging individuals, communities and businesses to switch off non-essential electric lights for an hour as a symbol of commitment to the planet, raising awareness for energy consumption and effects  on the environment.
 


Xàbia se suma un año más a La hora del Planeta

Xàbia se sumará un año más a La hora del Planeta, una acción simbólica que se celebrará el sábado 30 de marzo para llamar la atención sobre el problema del cambio climático y promover estilos de vida sostenible. El Ayuntamiento es uno de los 422 municipios del Estado y casi 7500 ciudadanos que apagarán la luz entre las 20’30 y 21’30 horas, aunque el movimiento es mucho más amplio ya que involucra a 188 países.

El edificio que se quedará a oscuras será la Casa Consistorial. Asimismo, se anima a todos los ciudadanos a sumarse también y apaguen las luces en sus  hogares o negocios durante una hora. Desde la Hora del Planeta también se proponen varios retos para emprender de forma personal como son un día sin carne, un día sin plástico o un día sin generar emisiones de CO2.
