What is Earth Hour?

It is a global movement originated in Sydney in 2006 to show support for climate change action. Businesses and major buildings switched off their lights for an hour to display the message that everyone – from politicians to children – has a part to play in protecting the Earth from climate change.


Do you know that…

Singapore is one of the top 21 countries in social activities around Earth Hour in 2011? Every year since 2009, our iconic monuments, buildings and hundreds of businesses participate in Earth Hour to show support for protecting Planet Earth from climate change. If you are around the city area, be sure to catch sight of lights being switched off on Singapore’s magnificent skyline at 8.30pm sharp on 23rd March 2013.
