Thais support Earth Hour 2016 ‘fight climate change’
Scores of Thais showed their solidarity with the rest of the world for the “Earth Hour 2016” campaign by turning off non-essential lights for an hour last night.
The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration joined the WWF Thailand and the Foundation for Environmental Education for Sustainable Development (Thailand) in hosting a related event at Central World Plaza yesterday.
BMA deputy permanent secretary Ratchaneewan Asawathitanonda presided over the start of a caravan of 200 cyclists at Lumpini Park yesterday afternoon that rode to Central World Plaza as part of the event.
It was the 10th staging for Earth Hour 2016.
The first event was held in Australia in 2007, where WWF inspired Sydneysiders to show support for climate change action that resulted in millions of people and thousands of businesses turning their lights off for an hour.
