Dear Members and Friends

If we as consumers and businesses are to achieve a more sustainable existence for ourselves and for future generations, we all need to change our individual and collective behaviour. This year’s Earth Hour aims to encourage positive action from all of us. Earth Hour is organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

The two components of the Earth Hour Festival are:
• WWF Earth Hour Festival @ Esplanade - 25 to 26 March 2023
    - Including the symbolic Switch Off of lights on 25 March at 8.30 pm
• WWF Movement - Mobilising Communities & Individuals - March to June 2023

Earth Hour Festival & Switch Off:
Held at the Esplanade, the Earth Hour Festival is family friendly and will be held over the weekend of 24 to 26 March 2023. The switch-off is slated for 25th March at 8.30 pm at The Esplanade’s Outdoor Theatre.

WWF Earth Hour Movement:
First introduced during Earth Hour 2020, the aim of the Kosong Plan is to encourage people to adopt everyday actions to help our climate using the concept of ‘living with less’. This year, WWF presents the next evolution of the Kosong Plan - ‘Kosong Actions’ that each one of us can undertake in our personal journeys towards living a more climate-conscious and sustainable lifestyle. You can show support by performing at least one ‘Kosong Action’ per week to help reach WWF’s global goal of reducing the planet’s temperature by 1.5°C.(Kosong is Malay for “Plain” most often used in Singapore to order black tea or coffee without milk and sugar.)

Be Part Of The Movement!
We invite all members and friends to:
1. Switch off your lights for an hour on 25 March at 8.30pm and
2. Submit your individual and business Kosong Plans

If you are interested to get involved, please register for the Switch Off and submit your Kosong Plan at If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact WWF at [email protected].

Thank you for your support and for taking responsibility to act. It matters for you, your children, your grandchildren and your business.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
