City Square Mall – the first eco-mall in Singapore, owned and managed by City Developments Limited (CDL), will once again participate in Earth Hour, an annual global initiative led by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) on 23 March. At 8.30pm, the mall’s façade lighting and other non-essential lights will be powered down for an hour as part of its commitment towards generating awareness on climate change.
City Square Mall will also support the global initiative by encouraging participation from the public through a series of interesting and exciting activities at Basement 1, Fountain Square. In the lead-up to Earth Hour, children can participate in facilitated DIY candle making sessions and there will be eco-colouring bag giveaways before the countdown towards Earth Hour. At 8.30pm, the mall’s façade lighting and other non-essential lights will go off, followed by a free outdoor movie screening of the animated film, “Dr Seuss’ The Lorax”.
The big screen adaptation of Dr. Seuss' environmentally themed children's book documents the adventure of a 12-year-old boy as he journeys out of his artificial, plastic city in search of a tree to help him to win the girl of his dreams. There, he encounters the grumpy Lorax, who will provide him a worldly lesson like no other – the importance of protecting the environment.
