Small actions such as turning off electrical appliances when not in use, saving water, planting a row of trees will protect the environment.

Launched in 2007 in Sydney (Australia), Earth Hour (held in the evening of March 27) is now the only, largest event which draws the biggest participation on the planet for environment protection.

This year, in the context of social restrictions against the Covid-19 pandemic being imposed in most countries, the event goes online and will rally millions of people around the world.

Many hotels, resorts and serviced apartments throughout Vietnam join the campaign with many activities in response to the Earth Hour campaign.

As part of its sustainability efforts, over 23 properties of CapitaLand across 10 cities in Vietnam will be participating in the Earth Hour, a World-Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) global movement tonight.

From 8.30pm, CapitaLand Vietnam and its lodging business unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott) will go beyond the hour to switch off their buildings’ façade and non-essential lights throughout the night. 

CapitaLand Vietnam and Ascott will also encourage their customers, guests, staff and other stakeholders to lead a more sustainable lifestyles by sharing tips on how to reduce plastic, electronic and water waste.

Metropole Hanoi Hotel will turn off the light and reduce the use of electrical equipment for 90 minutes from 8 to 9.30pm.

Lighting systems on hotel fronts, tree canopies, corridors, unused guest rooms, and hotel office areas will all be turned off to raise awareness about the importance of environmental protection and  natural habitat preservation.

Meanwhile, the hotel's restaurants and bakeries will use candles for lighting. The hotel is also taking steps towards a more sustainable development model such as replacing plastic bags with paper bags whenever possible.

The "Our Planet" documentary film filmmaker David Attenborough urged for environment protection.

The Anam Cam Ranh Resort in Nha Trang will host Earth Hour Dinner at Bai Dai and a movie show with one episode in the series Our Planet at the open-air cinema under the starry sky.

The resort also encourages guests to turn off lights and electrical appliances in their rooms from 8 to 9pm on March 27.

The episode of “Coastal Seas” by science filmmaker David Attenborough will be shown at 7pm. According to the filmmaker, “Coastal seas account for 7% of our ocean, yet they are responsible for 95% of the world's marine production - these are our planet's fishing grounds.

Despite their importance to humanity, few are protected. Yet wherever effective protection exists, life bounces back in huge abundance, the wildlife will thrive, and we will catch more fish,” he stated.

All three Azerai resorts have many practical activities in response to Earth Hour on the evening of March 27 this year. Azerai La Residence Hue Hotel cooperates with Hue Tourism College to hold a piano concert in a romantic garden space under sparkling candlelight.

Participants will join 60+ puzzle to take souvenir photos and enjoy cocktails in melodious piano music. Especially for the first time, the hotel will hold a contest "Share Earth Hour Video" for those who follow the hotel fanpage.

The most liked and viewed five videos will be entitled with valuable vouchers for using the service at Azerai La Residence Hue.

Azerai Can Tho and Azerai Ke Ga Bay will turn off electric appliances while lighting the whole resorts’ landscapes and properties with lanterns and candles for about one hour.
