At least 101 towns and villages in Hungary will join the global Earth Hour campaign on March 27 to demand action on climate change, organizers told MTI on Thursday.
At 8.30 pm the localities involved will turn off their floodlights for an hour, expressing their commitment to climate protection and environmental awareness.
The campaign organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) will also be joined by over 300 Hungarian institutions, including schools, kindergartens, hotels, banks, restaurants and foundations.
WWF Hungary, which join the campaign for the first time, will organize a program in Buda Castle. Once the floodlights of Budapest have been switched off, participants will drum together and watch the performance of a fire juggler.
Launched in Sydney three years ago, the Earth Hour campaign involved nearly 4,000 towns and cities of 88 countries last year. (MTI)
