HITN launched the Earth Festival this week, an initiative aimed at promoting ecological awareness among its viewers and users.
The festival will take place throughout the month of April and will feature diverse programming, information, and activities related to the care and conservation of the Earth.
The main purpose of the Earth Festival is to emphasize the importance of conservation, which involves caring for and maintaining natural resources to ensure that they are not exhausted. Natural resources are physical elements that already exist in nature, such as soil, water, air, plants, or animals.
HITN has scheduled a special prime time programming that includes some episodes of iconic shows such as Fierce Planet, Wonderful Animals, Wild World, and Blue World.
Additionally, children’s digital experiences have been designed so they may learn through fun activities, and selected episodes have been curated for their entertainment and education.
“Conservation is not an option, it is a necessity for the survival of our planet. The Earth Festival is an opportunity for HITN to promote ecological awareness and encourage civic action towards a sustainable future,” said Michael D. Nieves, President and CEO of HITN.
HITN also plans to host a webinar titled Earth Day: Conserving Our Planet, which will address the topic of conservation and will be moderated by Ron Magill. This virtual forum will feature guests such as biologist Yara de Melo Barros and Deon Cilliers, project manager of the Cheetah Outreach Trust. The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 22 at 8 pm (ET) and will be available on HITN.TV and HITN GO.
