22 March 2023 - 11: 26

Dénia joins Earth Hour for another year, the initiative that aims to materialize the commitment to the defense of nature and the climate in an action. For this reason, on Saturday, March 25, from 20:30 p.m. to 21:30 p.m., the lights on the facades of two emblematic buildings in the city, the town hall and the castle.

The Dénia City Council adheres to an alliance of governments and organizations such as the WWF that calls for greater ambition and urgent action to stop and reverse the loss of nature. Turning off the lights in public buildings helps to attract attention and make visible the public administration's commitment to environmental policies that reject unsustainable actions. The WWF warns about the danger of the loss of biodiversity for our quality of life and that of future generations. The NGO explains that the next 7 years are crucial in stopping environmental degradation that would become irreversible, therefore, the next few years are essential to keep the planet within planetary limits and below the climatic threshold of 1,5ºC.

Citizen commitment

Not only the municipalities can carry out this action; WWF invites citizens to join this initiative by turning off the lights at home for an hour to connect with nature and make visible the will to bet on the so-called green policies.

For the second consecutive year, the challenge of jointly covering 40.000 kilometers -measurement of the circumference of the Earth- running, swimming, skating, walking or cycling has also been launched; The objective is to promote sport and its values ​​among people, who can share their sports routines on social networks with the hashtags #KMPorElPlaneta #VueltaAlPlaneta and can join by noting on the NGO's website the distance they agree to cover.

    Beelzebub doesn't need to turn off the lights.
    There is a family in Dénia (I am not going to say who) who have sought help because they say they have the Devil at home.
    The thing is that in 2019 they did a Satanic Rite and since then they have not stopped having problems.
    In fact, that same year one of its members asked God for the end of the world and tells that when doing so he blew air into his face and then stopped.
    The following year came the Pandemic.

    A question? Where is the average temperature of the Earth measured? In the mouth, armpit or elsewhere? Seriously, an award that can explain it convincingly, especially if we take into account that in the oceans, more than 70% of the earth's surface, there are no weather stations.

  3. Luis says:

    Will the WWF also be there to denounce construction licenses in green areas, forests, fields, beachfront, etc.? Or does it only encourage actions like this nonsense of turning the light off and on?

      Nooo, that serves to feed the personal boxes of politicians so that they continue "working" for the population and the planet!
