Landmarks in Astana to Dim Lights in Support of Earth Hour

Astana, The Gulf Observer: In a symbolic gesture of solidarity with global efforts towards environmental conservation, major landmarks and administrative buildings across Astana will dim their lights for one hour as part of Earth Hour, according to media reports.

More than 30 prominent landmarks, including the iconic Baiterek monument, the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation, the Khazret Sultan Mosque, as well as the mayor’s office and residential complexes, will participate in the initiative. From 20:30 to 21:30 local time, non-essential lights will be switched off to mark Earth Hour and demonstrate support for the planet.

Earth Hour, an annual event organized under the auspices of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), garners support from over 2 billion individuals worldwide. The grassroots movement, which originated in 2007 in Sydney, Australia, aims to raise awareness about environmental issues and encourage collective action towards sustainable living.

By dimming lights for 60 minutes, Astana joins a global community committed to promoting responsible stewardship of Earth’s resources. Earth Hour serves as a poignant reminder of the individual and collective actions that each person can take to safeguard the planet for future generations.

The participation of Astana in Earth Hour underscores the city’s commitment to environmental sustainability and echoes the broader global sentiment towards preserving the natural world. Through such initiatives, communities worldwide unite in their dedication to protecting the environment and fostering a greener, more sustainable future.
