“Earth Hour” 2023: “Blackout” in the Municipality of Loulé in favor of sustainability

March 25th, from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Between 20:30 and 21:30 on the 25th of March, the Municipality of Loulé will once again be one of the points on the globe where the lights will go out, in a symbolic moment of reflection on climate change.

This Autarchy thus once again associates itself with “Earth Hour”, an environmental action internationally promoted by the global nature conservation organization Associação Natureza Portugal | World Wildlife Found (WWF).

In 2023, “Earth Hour” has the theme “Food” and the concept “Disconnect. Dedicate an hour to the planet”, intending to take advantage of the power of citizens around the world to better respond to the impacts of climate change, considered one of the greatest environmental, social, economic and even health challenges that the Planet faces, with the aggravation and greater frequency of occurrence of extreme weather events.

On a local level, the Municipality of Loulé undertakes to turn off the lights in several buildings and public spaces in the municipality for 60 minutes on March 25: Town Hall, Eng.º Duarte Pacheco Building/Municipal Assembly, Eng.º Monument Duarte Pacheco, Municipal Market of Loulé, Cineteatro Louletano, Castle Wall of Loulé, Municipality Center of Quarteira and buildings of the parish councils of S. Sebastião, S. Clemente, Quarteira, Almancil, Salir, Querença, Tôr, Benafim, Boliqueime, Alte and Ameixial.

Alongside the “global blackout”, this year it is intended to stimulate the creativity of families in demonstrating their adherence through individual events, from their homes, these events being able to be shared with the National Association of Portuguese Municipalities, in association with ANP | WWF, through social networks or to the following email address.

Remember that “Earth Hour” started in 2007, in Sydney (Australia), when 2.2 million people and more than 2,000 companies turned off the lights for one hour in a climate action position. It is now the largest movement in the world in defense of the environment.
