Earth Hour is a global environmental campaign initiated by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) which started with a lights-off event in Australia in 2007 and now has grown to engage a record-breaking 178 countries this year.
“Sa usapin ng Climate Change atin lamang tandaan ang tatlong Ms: Makialam, Makipagtulungan, at Maki-isa,” shared Laguna Water’s Regulatory and External Affairs Head Real C. Magtangob during the official switch-off event organized by SM City Calamba and attended by partners in both the private and public sector.
