Earth Hour is a powerful symbol of unity, hope and power in collective action. It is more than just an hour for the planet. It is a movement for our future.

Since its launch in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into one of the world’s largest grassroots environmental movements – giving people a powerful voice on climate and nature loss crises and highlighting the need for unified action.

Earth Hour in Singapore

In Singapore, Earth Hour has been celebrated physically and digitally over the years.

Earth Hour 2023 will see an ambitious effort spread over 6-months, including two major events and many roadshows and weekly activities, to move decidedly from advocacy to action.
