Truly, there has been no better time to open the conversation about the climate issues plaguing our world than today, and explore how our planetary emergency and global loss of nature impacts our lives.
Indeed, some have coined the coronavirus crisis a stress test for future climate shocks, while many experts claim that a warming world has encouraged the spread of new infectious diseases.
Earth Hour, by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) aims to provide a platform for people to voice their support for nature and the future they envision, with a digital live steam, Earth Hour 2020 - Live & Unplugged. The three hour digital event will bring together Singapore’s diverse voices for the environment through live performances and unscripted conversations with local changemakers, ending with a symbolic lights-out at 8.30pm.
This includes hosts Paul Foster, Charmaine Yee, and Angelique Teo, with live performances from stars such as Benjamin Kheng, Inch Chua, Fariz Jabba & Yung Raja, Nathan Hartono, Preetipls, RRILEY, Sezairi and Subhas.
“It is more important now than ever before for people in Singapore to acknowledge that we are in the midst of an unprecedented planetary emergency which has devastating consequences for nature and humans,” says Kim Stengert, Chief of Strategic Communication and External Relations at WWF-Singapore in a press release. “Earth Hour is an important rallying call for Singaporeans to make their voice heard about the change they want to see, in order to avert this planetary emergency.”
