21 FEBRUARY 2019, SINGAPORE - The world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment returns to Singapore with an electrifying festival of music, food and culture. Earth Hour 2019 will bring together communities for environmental change, by highlighting the impact of individual actions on nature.

Organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the three-day festival features nature-themed experiences that highlight the rapid loss of nature and its impact. Through workshops and activities, Earth Hour aims to reach thousands in Singapore to be conscious citizens that make sustainable choices on a daily basis.

The highlight of the festival is a countdown concert on 30 March. Featuring some of Singapore’s biggest local and international acts, the concert will count down to the symbolic Earth Hour lights out that takes place in 180 countries and territories around the globe.

Driving home the sustainability message, Earth Hour will be carbon neutral, zero waste and feature sustainable solutions for large-scale events. These solutions include eliminating disposables, the use of reusable containers and bags, and a physical set up created from recycled wooden pallets that can be dismantled and reused.
