Appealing for broad public participation, environment councillor Daisee Aguilera called the worldwide lights-out event “a symbolic act against climate change”. For ten years World Wide Fund for Nature has helmed the Earth Hour movement. “The Formentera Council felt strongly about joining the effort,” said the councillor, “and opted to turn out the lights at some of Sant Francesc's main roads”.
