Singapore plays host to the largest Earth Hour celebration in the world at The Float@Marina Bay.


Notice the Earth Hour’s logo together with Spider-Man’s logo, earlier this year, Spider-Man was declared as the first Super Hero ambassador for Earth Hour with a message to inspire individuals to use their power to become superheroes for the planet.

The stars and director of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had endorsed their support for WWF’s Earth Hour Blue platform, the world’s first crowdfunding platform, to save the planet which aimed to harness the power of the crowd to raise funds and support for on-the-ground environmental projects from across the world.


Our Parenting World team is very proud to be part of this significant and meaningful event. 


The Earth Hour lights off is an annual symbolic event that encourages the civic society to go beyond the hour and do their bit for the planet. This year it was observed from 8:30-9:30pm on Saturday, 29 March, and iconic buildings around the city-state such as Marina Bay Sands, ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay Financial Centre, Marina Barrage, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Merlion Park, Singapore Flyer, Helix Bridge, The Fullerton Heritage properties and buildings in the Central Business District, turned their lights off in an iconic show of support and commitment for the Earth Hour movement.

Earth Hour this year also coincided with the culmination of Urban Redevelopment Authority’s i Light Marina Bay 2014, Asia’s only sustainable light art festival that showcases innovative content and the intelligent use of lighting, making this year’s celebration a remarkable visual treat.

One of the highlights of Earth Hour celebration is WWF-Singapore and Spider-Man, Earth Hour’s first-ever Super Hero ambassador, along with the cast, director and producers of  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that include Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx and  Marc Webb turned off the lights in the world’s largest Earth Hour celebration at The Float@Marina Bay. 

Singapore’s signature Marina Bay skyline plunged into darkness for an hour from 8.30-9.30pm. Over 600 organisations from Singapore also contributed to the largest offline and online social movement this year. The event has a record number of more than 9,000 people attending and over 600 organisations from Singapore contributed to the largest offline and online social movement this year.

The message to bring across is to urge people to “Use Your Power” to save the planet. Individuals and companies to commit to switch off the lights or to one of the four key actions to help save the Earth. 

1) Turn up their air-conditioners by one degree

2) Switching to LED lights

3) Use less plastic bags

4) Take shorter showers
