WATCH: Message of Sec. Robert E.A. Borje for Earth Hour 2022
 
 

Tonight, the Philippines joins people around the world in turning off our lights for one full hour.

It will be sixty minutes of darkness, a period of reflection, a time for renewed calls for decisive action.

As stewards of our planet and vanguards of our nation, we are called upon to reflect on the many challenges we face in making our Earth a much better place to live in and a much better planet to leave for future generations.

Science has taught us one a tough lesson: Climate change is upon us and fundamentally changing the Earth and the way we all live.
If we do not act collectively with a greater sense of urgency and commitment, we face a very bleak future.

Yet there is hope: Human agency and the will to find solutions will help steer us towards the path of sustainability and resilience.
The Climate Change Commission joins all those who believe that – together – we can make a difference.

Earth Hour is more than just 60 minutes of sobering commemoration. Its observance should rightly be seen as a way of life that supports our planet’s life.

Tonight, may take just an hour of our time. But if we act with full understanding of our responsibilities – and act beyond this window, then the Earth, our Earth, and humankind can benefit far beyond our lifetime.

Maraming salamat po at mabuhay ang Pilipinas.
