Through the support of the local parish church in Mamburao, the administrators of private and public schools and in partnership with the local government officials, people in all walks of life have been informed to take personal accountability for their climate impact and make behavioral changes by simply turning-off their unnecessary lights to reduce their carbon footprings.
The local parish church in Mamburao has reminded the general public that the tolling of the bells will be the signal of the start of the one (1) hour lights-off. IEC officer/s and extension officers were involved in the information dissemination and documentation of the whole event.
