On March 19, De La Salle University-Dasmariñas will once again join the global initiative to turn off lights for one hour from 8:30-9:30 pm in an effort to draw attention to the impact of climate change in the world.
The University has been actively supporting the endeavor since 2011.
"The activity aims to raise awareness on the immediate need to mitigate the impacts of climate change, make us all realize that our Earth’s resources are finite and changing our “business as usual” attitude is one of the keys for a sustainable future," Marlon Pareja, director of DLSU-D's Environmental Resource Managament Center, said.
This year, the organizers of the endeavor encourages participants to use their social power to to shine a light on climate action with the Hashtag #ChangeClimateChange.
