The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Singapore announces today that Earth Hour will be going fully digital in 2020 as the first ever Earth Hour 2020 – Live & Unplugged, a live, digital-only performance bringing together Singapore’s diverse voices for the environment.
For the first time, Singapore’s Earth Hour event will take the form of a globally accessible digital live stream. Taking place on 28th March from 5.30 – 8.30pm SGT, Earth Hour 2020 – Live & Unplugged is a three-hour digital event of live music by prominent artistes and unscripted conversations with leading environmental changemakers on the exigency of the current planetary emergency. Earth Hour 2020, the world’s largest global grassroots movement for the environment, will see millions of people around the world come together to show their commitment to the planet. Earth Hour 2020 – Live & Unplugged will culminate in a symbolic lights-out at 8.30pm local time.
Viewers tuning into Earth Hour 2020 – Live & Unplugged can look forward to live performances from a star-studded lineup of Singapore’s best, including Benjamin Kheng, Inch Chua, Fariz Jabba & Yung Raja, Nathan Hartono, Preetipls, Rriley, Sezairi and Subhas. Hosted by seasoned presenters Paul Foster, Charmaine Yee and Angelique Teo, the show will also feature lively discourse between changemakers and local personalities exploring how our planetary emergency and global loss of nature impacts our lives — hot-button topics close to the hearts of Singaporeans everywhere.
Earth Hour’s call-to-action this year comes with an Open Letter to Singapore, a platform for people to voice out the future they envision for the next decade.
