In Venezuela, the Guardians for the Peace of Mother Earth were connected to the celebration of Earth Hour, an initiative that invites people to turn off their lights for 1 hour to give Mother Earth a space to breathe.
The international call that was promoted by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), allowed the volunteers of the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace (GEAP), who are part of the Guardians environmental movement, to ratify their commitment to the protection and restoration of Mother Earth.
Guardians in the Carabobo state, Falcón, Yaracuy, Zulia, the Los Llanos region and the Andes, joined this environmental campaign in which millions of people participated in more than 180 countries to raise awareness on the need to take measures in the face of climate change and polluting emissions, as well as saving energy and reducing light pollution.
Earth Hour is a global celebration that has become the greatest environmental mobilization and solidarity with nature. This year the campaign focused on the impact of climate change on biodiversity.
The GEAP in Venezuela called all its activists to this voluntary blackout from 8:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. to carry messages about the interconnection of human beings with Mother Earth, and the importance of preserving natural resources.
