Earth Hour was first celebrated in Singapore in 2009. Since then, participation in the event and the support for it has grown, year on year.
Following on the heels of the severe haze crisis that made headlines globally last year, WWF-Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia have teamed up to shine a light on protecting forests and peatlands in Indonesia. They are working together to encourage people to sign a petition, calling for greater implementation of the Peatland Moratorium in Indonesia. The offices are creating a common microsite that will provide individuals with multiple actions they can take to protect the forests, as consumers as well as communities.
