People of the world today are divided and segregated on many counts. One thing, however, which we all have in common, is the Planet Earth. Earth Hour Movement is an attempt at protecting the environment and by small steps like these we aim to create a world with a better environment.
Through such steps we can work towards mitigating the effects of climate change. The Parliament of Pakistan is glad to be a part of the Earth Hour movement which will see its tenth year in 2017 , the World Wide Fund Pakistan deserves true and earnest appreciation in this regard.
The active participation of Senate in the Earth Hour Movement is also important in the context that the Upper House of the Parliament has passed the Pakistan Climate Change Act on March 17, 2017 which will enable the country to tackle pressing climate change issues and channelize global help in implement projects that boost the national climate change resilience, protect lives and livelihoods of the people.
On Saturday, 25th March, 2017, lights at the Parliament House will be switched off from 8 30 to 9 30 pm. The representatives in the Parliament of Pakistan urge the people of Pakistan to support and practically implement the earth hour movement by switching off lights and playing their part in protecting our homes.
