Pakistan observes Earth Hour

Lights at the National, provincial assemblies and other state buildings were turned off from 8:30 to 9:30 pm, as Pakistan observed Earth Hour.

The Earth Hour is part of the global campaign to raise awareness about climate change and its impact on the planet’s vanishing biodiversity.

 

Earlier the government’s official Twitter handle also urged the public to switch off excessive lights for sixty minutes at 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

The UAE Embassy in Islamabad also participated in the global Earth Hour initiative aimed at raising awareness on climate change and environmental issues by turning off lights.
