Celebrate Earth Hour 2019

Editor: Saturday, 30 March is Earth Hour. To mark this occasion and heighten our consciousness that ‘the planet is increasingly polluted, rapidly warming and dangerously depleted’ (UN Environment), requiring us all to change our behaviours, let us join millions of people around the world in taking action at 8.30p.m. (your local time).

There are many actions that can be taken and reflected upon, apart from turning off lights for an hour. Some suggestions: watching the Earth Hour video (below) or the Earthrise documentary ; exploring another related resource from this issue of Mercy eNews, a previous issue, or from the libraryreflecting on the outcome of MIRP actions collated under the Addressing *Degradation of Earth* theme on our website, and praying for the planet and the future of its life forms.
