The committee has asked relevant agencies to encourage organisations, schools, businesses, and households to join together in some of the activities to promote the campaign. A number of events can be done including cycling, running, environmental protection, energy saving, and volunteering.

Local residents will be encouraged to turn off all unnecessary electric devices between 20:00 and 21:30 p.m on March 9, with a switch-off ceremony scheduled to take place in the August Revolutionary Square.

These activities are intended to increase public awareness about energy saving, environmental protection, and climate change, whilst encouraging a low-carbon economy.
