Earth Hour-March 19th 2016

2016’s first Earth Hour shall be celebrated on Saturday, March 19th. This Earth Hour has been organized by WWF, which has been doing great activities worldwide to create more awareness regarding planet earth amongst people. There is an immense social media campaign going on regarding Earth Hour.

Surprisingly, a lot of people in Pakistan still do not know what Earth Hour is all about. Earth Hour is the largest grassroots movement celebrated to show your love towards planet earth. It is celebrated in 170 countries and territories by switching off lights at homes, offices and landmarks for one hour. It is a gesture to display love and support for the cause of earth’s protection.

In a country like Pakistan, where most of the parts are still facing the problem of load shedding, Earth Hour should be celebrated with an extra effort and energy. Almost every day, millions of people in Pakistan face serious circumstances due to load shedding. Electricity is a big problem in even metropolitan cities like Karachi. Similarly, there are so many crimes associated with the issue of electricity in almost every big city. All these issues need to be tackled in order to make Pakistan a better and modern place to live.

Celebrations like Earth Hour should promote saving energy and relying on solar energy in Pakistan. People in Pakistan should contribute towards making earth a safe place to live for humans by saving its resources and not taking them for granted as a part of celebrating Earth Hour.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
