CORTES, Bohol March 29, 2014 (PIA) –Instead of in basking electric light watching television or just plain occupied with the mundane tasks of entertainment at night, Boholanos switch off their lights and instead take on their bikes and get to Tagbilaran City streets in solidarity with the Earth Hour, March 29. 

And instead of a 60 minutes switching off, the bike for the earth hour organizers hope the estimated 18 kilometer ride across the city’s main thoroughfares and back roads would pedal for the awareness of fighting climate change, an event that could go as long as an hour and a half of good old biking experience for a cleaner environment. 

Organizers said in support with the Earth Hour, they have posted invitation to bikers and their families in an event that gets them from City Square at 7:00 PM to Booy, Taloto, Manga, Tiptip, San Isidro, Dao, Cogon and back to Poblacion in the heart of the city.

By switching off for an hour or more, power generation is slackened and the burnt fuels’ effects to the environment could be lessened. 
In the Philippines, organizers World Wild Life Fund for Nature also advocated for other meaningful activities especially on fund generation, awareness campaign and the likes. 

For safety reasons too, riders are strictly asked to wear helmets, blinkers and bright colored jerseys, to be visible in the traffic.

This also gets Bohol into unity mode with the largest global environment activity that started in Sydney, Australia in 2007. 

Bohol also joins the country as among the 150 nations struggling to impact on climate change.

The Philippines – considered by Earth Hour Global as a hero country – has held the top spot since 2009!

This too as by around 8:30 PM on Saturday, March 29, millions of people around the world take a stand against climate change by switching off your lights for one hour or over (60+).

It may be recalled that In 2006, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)-Australia inspired Sydney-siders to show their support for climate change action in the first ever Earth Hour event. In doing so, it showed everyone – from children to CEOs and politicians – that they have the power to change the world they live in.

In March 2007, 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses in Sydney, Australia, turned their lights out for one hour to take a stand against climate change.

In 2008, the initial plan was just to take Earth Hour to the rest of Australia. But then the City of Toronto, Canada, signed up and it wasn’t long before 35 countries and almost 400 cities and towns were part of the event. It said something compelling to the world: that the climate challenges facing our planet are so significant that change needs to be global.
