earthhourofficial #madeinEarthHour [30 of 60] - Since 2012, around 600 people from the Aasayi village in Etawah district, India have organised their own Earth Hour event to raise awareness about deforestation, biodiversity and saving energy. This village is located in an area known for its rich biodiversity on the riverbank of the 1,376km long Yamuna river, which runs through several states of India. Every year organisers share beautiful images of participants from the village creating a human 60+ logo, and this year the community was also made aware about the importance of solar energy as a local solution to the global climate change issue. The village’s participation shows just how far Earth Hour reaches as a platform for people to take action to protect our planet from anywhere in the world. Image Red Tape Movement/Prabhat Misra 4w
