S’pore buildings to switch off lights for Earth Hour

SINGAPORE: More than 100 buildings, locations and organisations in Singapore will switch off their lights as part of the global Earth Hour initiative by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

They will turn off their lights for one hour from 8.30pm on 23 March, joining national monuments around the world that will do the same.

These include the buildings in Marina Bay, such as ArtScience Museum, Gardens by the Bay, Esplanade, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, Marina Bay Financial Centre, Marina Bay Sands, the Merlion and Singapore Flyer.

The three tallest buildings in Singapore —— One Raffles Place, Republic Plaza and United Overseas Bank Plaza —— will also take part in Earth Hour.
