28 March: Earth Hour 2020 – Live & Unplugged

Earth Hour is back again, and this time you will be able to watch it on YouTube wherever you may be at that time. Please take care and may you all be healthy and well.

Earth Hour brings together people globally to act for nature and climate. Every year, we will countdown together across 180 countries and territories around the world to do one iconic thing: switch off the lights.

It’s not about doing it to “save electricity”. It is a symbol of unity. A symbol of hope. A symbol of power in collective action.

For the first time, Singapore’s Earth Hour event will take the form of a globally accessible digital live stream this year.

Taking place on 28th March from 5.30 – 8.30pm SGT, Earth Hour 2020 – Live & Unplugged is a three-hour digital event of live music by prominent artistes and unscripted conversations with leading environmental changemakers on the exigency of the current planetary emergency. The live event will culminate in a symbolic lights-out at 8.30pm local time.

RSVP here and catch the livestream on the Earth Hour website on 28 March!

While you are there, please take some time out to personalise and sign off on an Open Letter to Singapore. Green Drinks (Singapore) is one of the local environmental organisations that are backing this initiative, which rallies Singaporeans to safeguard Singapore’s future by calling for improved environmental policies and business practices nationwide.

Nature and the food security, clean air, water sources and good health it provides us are at risk.

2020 is the year for governments to take action to make sure our future here in Singapore and on this planet is secure.

Add your voice to an open letter that we will use to push Singapore’s decision makers to make tough decisions that protect your future.

Let’s make a date to watch Earth Hour on Saturday!
