Earth Hour 2008: Singapore Grassroot Movement

On the 29th March 2008 at 8pm, cities across the world will turn off their lights for one hour, supporting the Earth Hour 2008 campaign by World Wildlife Fund. This will send a powerful global message that collectively, we can take action on global warming. Earth Hour aims to reach out to individuals, spreading the word of Earth Hour to all.

ECO Singapore has taken the initiative this year to work on this campaign by pro-actively reaching out to the grassroots such as the schools, Community Clubs and Residents' Committees.

They sincerely hope that they will be able to reach out individuals like yourself to spread on this campaign and its message.

The collective action that everyone will be doing across cities is to turn off their lights on 29th March 2008 from 8pm to 9pm local time.

It is a grassroot initiative and we need a group of volunteers to help coordinate this effort via internet.

The commitment will short and intensive, but meaningful.

Should you be interested, please feel free to drop an email to

Their existing two volunteers, Kephren & Aarti will loop you in the process and update you of the progress.
