The Jumilla City Council has joined again and will actively participate for the fourth consecutive year in 'Earth Hour', a global campaign to fight climate change through the symbolic gesture of turning off the lights for one hour.
This Saturday, March 28, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., the lighting of the Castle will be turned off.
Through this initiative, the citizens of the municipality are encouraged to join by turning off the lights of the different homes during this hour, and launching in Morse code with lanterns, from windows and balconies the following message:
TURN THE LIGHT OFF ALL WILL GO WELL:
.- / .- .. .- / .- .. ..- .. / - - .. - / .. .-.
/ -â€¦ ...
.-.-. The objective is to fill the balconies and windows with thousands of flashes to remember that wherever we are, this year from home (# QuédateEnCasa), all people remain connected and aware of the need to take care of everyone's home: the earth.
From the organization of the campaign, they point out that 2020 is a critical year for nature.
"This year the massive youth marches continue in the face of the climate emergency. And this year, key political decisions will be made on climate action, sustainable development and nature. These decisions will affect the health of our planet and, of course, our own future as a species in the coming decades. Scientists are clear, there are 10 years left to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. It is now or never, it is time to act before it is too late. "
