from the philippine cycling network:
The Chairman of the PTFCC, Hon. Angelo Reyes, and the Mayors of Manila, Pasay and Parañaque will turn off a giant switch to signal the start of the “lights off” at 8pm. We are hoping to have the fire brigade sirens to signal the beginning and end of Earth Hour as well.
The Firefly Brigade and all other bikers will be there to help in creating a festive vibe, grab the attention of passer-bys and encourage participation of establishments along the stretch of Roxas Boulevard . The Firefly Brigade will bike along the stretch of Roxas Boulevard, from Manila to Parañaque, from 7 to 8 pm holding Earth Hour flags and tarps and making reminder announcements over the megaphone about switching off lights for EarthHour from 8 to 9 pm. During the actual lights off from 8 to 9 pm, the firefly brigade can bike around the CCP lawn with blinking lights or glow in
We are also happy to involve the Firefly Brigade in Earth Hour as this has an added benefit of highlighting the fun of non motorized forms of travel.
