Earth Hour is approaching again – it’s on Saturday 25 March, from 8.30pm. And there are some cool ways for you to get involved in the event in Singapore. Launching “The Biggest Hour for Earth”, WWF Singapore is calling on supporters from all over the world to switch off the lights and give an hour for the Earth’s wellbeing. Here are details on how to get involved.
#1 Switch Off
The most direct way to participate in Earth Hour Singapore 2023 is to take part in the “Switch Off”, and turn off all non-essential lights for an hour on 25 March, 8.30pm. In 2022, over 1000 locations in Singapore were involved, in a representation of unity in the global fight against climate change. Let’s do even better this year! Once you’ve participated in the Switch Off, submit your details on WWF Singapore’s official website. You can get in the records as an individual, but also as a business, school or grassroots organisation.
#2 Earth Hour Festival
From 24 to 26 March, head to the Esplanade for the WWF Earth Hour Festival. Back after a two-year hiatus, the weekend-long event officially begins at 8.30pm on all days. The symbolic Switch Off event takes place at the Outdoor Theatre on Saturday. The activity-packed festival has something for all ages! Expect thematic art performances, educational booths on climate change, as well as talks by WWF on doing more for the environment.
#3 Pledge your support to the Kosong Plan
Thanks to WWF, everyone can double the impact of their commitment to the environment. The Singapore Kosong Plan brings businesses, organisations and individuals together for the common goal of achieving net-zero emissions in 2050. Pledge your support here. What are you waiting for?
