Bangkok Governor M.R. Sukhumbhand Paribatra presided over the “Earth Hour 2016” activity which took place at Central World Plaza from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm. The governor said the campaign helps to encourage individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour, as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.
Earth Hour is an ongoing campaign started by the World Wildlife Federation to raise awareness for climate change issues around the world.
The first Earth Hour was held in 2007 in Sydney, Australia. Since then, it has exploded across the world. This year, 178 countries participated by shutting the lights for a full hour.
