(Registration Open) Earth Hour 2019

In partnership with WWF Singapore, The Singapore Scout Association (SSA) is once again proud to support Earth Hour since its humble beginnings in Singapore in 2009.

 

On 30th March 2019, at 8.30pm, Singapore will join thousands of cities across the world in switching off non-essential lighting for one hour – Earth Hour – sending a powerful global message that it is possible to take action against global warming. This year, the main event will be held at Marina Bay Sands Events Plaza.

 

Units are strongly encouraged to join in the event. We are also recruiting volunteers to assist in the Earth Hour event.
