Warsaw Financial Center will take part in the eighth Polish edition of „Earth Hour” for the third time. This event is a part of a global campaign organized by WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature), gathering annually hundreds of millions of people all over the world. A symbolic gesture, that is turning off the lights in different locations in the world, is supposed to call people’s attention to common ecological problems and show the unity in efforts for climate protection. In 2014, the lights were turned off on i.a. the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the London Tower Bridge or the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.
The event has been supported by other activities for protection of certain area, such as the Amazon Rainforest or the Australian Great Barrier Reef since last year. This year’s event, which is organized by WWF Poland, encourages to engagement in protection of endangered species, that is a Baltic porpoise. Some details concerning the „Porpoise Hour” event may be found here.
