Earth Hour 2019 is happening at the end of the month. What will you be doing?
Come 30th March 2019, Saturday at 8.30pm local time, CapitaLand will take part in World Wide Fund for Nature’s (WWF) Earth Hour movement. The global initiative is now the world's largest ground movement for the environment, inspiring millions of people to act for our planet and nature.
Join CapitaLand and WWF to do your part for the planet and take part in the meaningful initiative. However, what should you do after the lights are out? If you’ve got no ideas on what to do, INSIDE has 6 suggestions for you.
The lights are off. A strong gust of wind hits the coffee table. In the living room, you hear something fall to the floor. You sneak out hesitantly to check out what is happening. The room feels cold. By moonlight, you spot something at the corner of your eye.
It’s an envelope. You open it. It’s your electricity bill.
Stop scaring yourself every month. This Earth Hour make a personal pledge to save electricity.
ProTip: Standby power accounts for up to 10% of your electricity bill at home. Remember to switch off your appliances and equipment at the source when not in use.
2. Get your nightmode on
With many new smart phones hawking their abilities to take fantastic pictures in low-light, it’s time to put their technologies to the test. Your on-going debate and quarrels with your friends can be finally put to rest.
Many of CapitaLand’s iconic properties around the world will take part in WWF’s Earth Hour movement to switch off their façade and other non-essential lights, so take advantage of this unique opportunity and snap away! Get creative and add your own light streaks, spotlights, lens flares and all that jazz. It'll be lit.
If you can wield a light saber like Luke Skywalker and possess the rhythmic skills of Ariana Grande – this one’s for you.
This month, CapitaLand will be hosting Singapore’s largest virtual reality gaming tournament at our malls.
Slash, swipe and channel your inner Jedi and take part in the “CapitaLand Mall Beat Saber Cup 2019”! Combining psychedelic colours and groovy beats, be amongst the first in Asia to experience this immersive VR game.
Gameplay is simple – slash the beats as they come, with the correct coloured saber in the direction of the arrow and chalk up the combos!
The winner of the tournament will earn his or her rightful place in the galaxy with five million STAR$®.
Happening now till 31 March, pick up your 'light saber' at 14 CapitaLand malls islandwide.

4. Laugh, cry and be inspired

How about throwing an Earth Hour gathering? Book a stay at one of our serviced residences and gather your friends for the evening. For one entire hour, switch off the lights and challenge your party guests not to use their phones. It’s time for socialising, not social media. Anyone caught using their phones will be easily found out.
Pour out some wine (don’t spill it!) and really communicate and connect with each other. Earth Hour is all about how we are interconnected to one another and with the planet. It’s time to meditate on how we can make better choices in our lives, to treat ourselves better and treat the earth better.
Come together for an electrifying festival of music, food and culture from 29-31 March. Organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the three-day “Festival for Nature” features nature-themed experiences that highlight the rapid loss of nature and its impact. There will also be countdown concert on 30 March. Counting down to when the lights go out during Earth Hour, the concert will feature some of Singapore’s biggest local and international acts. Just to name a few, Jack & Rai, Preetipls, Tabula and Subsonic will all be there.
It’s not all fun and games. Learn how to be a conscious citizen and make sustainable choices daily. There will also be a multi-sensory maze for you to learn and uncover the planet’s rapid loss of nature since the 1970s.
