All over the world, monuments, notably the Eiffel Tower, will turn off their lights from 8:30 p.m. on Saturday March 27, on the occasion of the 15th edition of Earth Hour. This event, organized by WWF, this year focuses on the ravages of deforestation. The regression of the forest area continues to advance at an alarming rate, 43 million hectares between 2004 and 2017, it is the equivalent of two thirds of the surface of France “, laments on franceinfo Véronique Andrieux, Director General of WWF France.

“Due to the pandemic, Earth Hour will be done in a 100% digital way”, explains Véronique Andrieux, even if many people should turn off their lights out of solidarity between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. “It is essentially a symbolic action, a massive digital mobilization action that mobilizes millions of people around the world to trigger a trigger, an awakening to the climate crisis we are going through”, defends the Director General of WWF France.

The NGO dedicated to environmental protection calls for signing a petition to fight against imported deforestation as part of the ‘Together for Forest’ campaign. For Véronique Andrieux, “the best way to prevent future pandemics is to stop destroying natural environments, including forests.”
