Bhumi Pednekar is an environmentally conscious citizen who has taken up climate conservation as a cause to root for. Bhumi has launched a lauded online and offline initiative called Climate Warrior through which she is raising awareness on how citizen of India can contribute to protect the climate. Today, the world over, climate conscious citizens are going to participate during the Earth Hour and Bhumi too has urged the nation to actively participate and show their commitment.
Earth Hour is a worldwide movement organized by the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF). The event is held annually encouraging individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights, for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., as a symbol of commitment to the planet. About 187 countries across the world is set to participate at this Earth Hour.
Bhumi says, “So, today from 8.30 pm – 9.30 pm, the world is going together observe the Earth Hour. It’s that one hour where we switch off any non-essential lights, save on as much electricity as possible. I know we all are at home – isolated and we kind of re-connect with nature and give back. It’s time to get on to a new journey of just trying to co-exist with nature. It is Earth hour and we must, must participate in it.”
