BEIJING - People around the world are expected to turn off lights at 8:30 pm local time on Saturday to mark Earth Hour 2022, an environmental movement calling for global solidarity in protecting Mother Nature.

With the theme of "Shape Our Future," this year's event aims to inspire people to take concrete actions for a brighter future of the planet.

Over the past decade, China has been advancing the green transition of its economy under the guidance of President Xi Jinping's Thought on Ecological Civilization, which derives from the Chinese perception, or reflection, of the relationship between man and nature.

On various occasions, Xi has expounded on his philosophy which also stresses promoting international cooperation for an environmentally friendly world.

The following are some highlights in his remarks:

While addressing the 16th G20 Leaders' Summit via video link, Xi urged developed countries to lead by example on emission reduction.

Developed countries should fully accommodate the special difficulties and concerns of developing countries, deliver on their commitments of climate financing, and provide technology, capacity-building and other support for developing countries, Xi said.

In his keynote speech at the leaders' summit of the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, known as COP15, Xi stressed the importance of international coordination in promoting ecological civilization.

"We need to strengthen solidarity to overcome difficulties and let people across countries benefit more and in a fairer way from development outcomes and a sound environment, so as to build a homeland of common development of all countries," said Xi.

"If we, humanity, do not fail Nature, Nature will not fail us," he said. "Ecological civilization represents the development trend of human civilization."
