At 20:30, relevant organs turned off lights in response to the Earth Hour campaign. In the framework of the event, an art performance was organized to share experiences on environmental protection.

Earlier, organizers held dissemination activities and walking events with the participation of the campaign’s ambassadors and over 1,000 young people in response to the Earth Hour.

Last year, after turning off power for one hour, the event helped save 471,000kWh, worth nearly VND 750 million.
