Earth Hour 2009 (Singapore) - WS

Singapore

At 8.30 pm Singapore time on 28th March, many parts of Singapore were plunged into darkness as lights went off and remained switched off until 9.30 pm. Earth Hour is a global initiative by the World Wide Fund for Nature to raise awareness of climate change.

The Merlion, Singapore Flyer, Fullerton Hotel and the Esplanade participated and stood in darkness for one hour in support of the fight against climate change.

8.30 pm lights off!

Lights off for Singapore Flyer too.


Singaporeans and tourists came together in support of Earth Hour!

  4. Thank you for sharing these wonderful shots. It must have been fun to celebrate it with a crowd. It's great to see how other countries took part in this momentous event. I'm happy that my family had an active part in it.

    BTW, I used to live in Manila but I now reside in Batangas, Philippines. :)

    Thanks for the link love. I edited my post and added the bloggers' links.

  5. Hey Eastcoastlife, were you at Esplanade yesterday? I suppose we were so near yet so far yesterday.

    I still can't fully appreciate the significance of link chains, and shall give it a piss.

  21. hello ECL! what a great gathering! It's lovely to see all the peoples gathering together for the same meaningful purpose. Malaysia just had our first EH 2009. It was spectacular. I meant KL tower and other big companies turning off their lights all at the same time! It's not easy to catch such a sight! :)
