Romania will mark the Earth Hour for a tenth year this weekend, on March 24. Those joining the event traditionally mark it by turning off the lights for one hour.
In Romania, NGO World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is collaborating with the Romanian Scouts to train and inspire future leaders working for the environment. The Romanian Scouts will attend various activities in their local communities and also turn off the lights for Earth Hour. This year’s edition of the event is the first one to see the two organizations collaborate.
In addition to turning off the lights at 20:30, events such as cycling tours, concerts and more will take place throughout the country. A full list of them is available in Romanian on the local Earth Hour platform.
In Bucharest, WWF and the Romanian Scouts will turn off the lights at Palatul Universul. The association Adevăraţii VeloPrieteni România will organize a cycling tour on the route Izvor Park, Unirii, Romană Square, Victoriei Square, Charles de Gaulle, Kiseleff Boulevard, Calea Victoriei and back to Izvor.
