Pangungunahan ng Quezon City government ang Earth Hour celebration sa Marso 25 sa Quezon Memorial Circle.

Katuwang ng Quezon City government ang World Wide Fund for Nature-Philippines.

Kinikilala ang Quezon City bilang leading climate action sa country kung kaya ito ang napiling maging host sa Earth Hour ngayong taon.

Ayon kay Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte, makikiisa ang lungsod sa 7,000 siyudad mula sa 193 na bansa na makikiisa sa Earth Hour.

“Local Government Units like Quezon City play a big part in raising awareness about the threats of climate change among our constituents. That’s why every environmental program and initiative we have established and are currently planning are inclusive and responsive to the circumstances of our people,” pahayag ni Belmonte.

Eksaktong 8:30 ng gabi sa Marso 25, sabay-sabay na papatayin ng lungsod ang mga ilaw sa loob ng isang oras sa Quezon Memorial Circle at iba pang government-run buildings.

“The city’s participation in Earth Hour signifies our strong commitment to push for climate justice as we head towards advancing inclusive, ambitious, and evidence-based climate action to provide a livable and quality community for all,” pahayag ni Belmonte.

Bago ang switch off activity, magsasagawa muna ang pamahalaang lungsod ng Padyak ng Kababaihan para sa Kalikasan at scavenger hunt para sa mga kabataan.

Inorganisa ito ng QC Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability Department (CCESD) at Gender and Development Council Office (GAD).
