Myanmar to celebrate Earth Day

or the first time, Myanmar will be joining 172 other countries in taking action on climate change. World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in partnership with Myanmar Climate Change Alliance (MCCA) will be hosting a celebration of Earth Hour on 25 March by lighting up 10,000 oil lamps at Shwedagon Pagoda. During the same period, from 8:30 to 9:30 PM, residents of Yangon will also be encouraged to switch off lights in their own homes and businesses.
