Earth Hour 2011 – Singapore




Earth Hour 2011 Singapore will take place at 8.30pm, Saturday, 26 March 2011.

Earth Hour’s global switch off to highlight momentous action for earth

The annual ‘lights out’ event led by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) – Earth Hour 2011 – prepares to showcase a growing Singaporean community committed to taking environmental actions that go beyond the hour.

From its inception as a single-city initiative in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into a global movement where hundreds of millions of people from every continent join together to acknowledge the importance of protecting our planet.

WWF will ask individuals, businesses and governments the world over to do more to the annual switch off by showcasing how they are taking action to preserve their environment on an ongoing basis.

For Earth Hour 2011, WWF Singapore will encourage the Singaporean community, businesses and the government to:

  1. Switch off lights for Earth Hour at 8.30pm, Saturday, 26 March 2011 and celebrate Singapore’s commitment to the planet with the people of the world.
  2. Take actions beyond the hour – Save energy in daily life by keeping air-conditioning temperature set at 25oC.

    The Earth-hour may not make a huge or significant impact in terms of saving power (because the rest of the time, people are wasting it), but a small step nevertheless. Moreover, it spreads the awareness – that one should think of saving power every day. And we need awareness, more than ever now. Good idea, posting about it in your blog…

      Thanks Jean. We are seeing a spate of natural calamities since last year all over the world. The earth is giving us hints to act now! This is just a teeny-weeny step.
