Earth Hour 2015 @ Sungei Wang

Chief Seattle once said, - “Earth does not belong to us; we belong to the Earth”. Indeed, protect the environment is us helping ourselves getting a greener planet to live in. Global warming is a serious climate change phenomenon that threatens our planet today. To raise awareness to Earth Hour, the global event is held annually to encourage individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off non-essential lights for one hour to show their commitment to the planet.

Every year, Sungei Wang Plaza join in this initiative together with millions around the world to send a powerful message to everyone. We will be turning off non-essential lights for one hour from 8.30pm to 9.30pm on 19 March 2016.

“As global warming continues to be a threat to our environment, our proactive action to preserve the planet is crucial. Henceforth, Sungei Wang Plaza is supporting Earth Hour to raise significant awareness to the public by having an enthralling event.” says Ms. Yuen May Chee, Complex Manager of Sungei Wang Plaza.



Standing tall right at Sungei Wang Plaza’s Main Entrance, a KL Tower replica made of used cansis being showcased. It is a great initiative to remind shoppers to practice recycling habits. To further enhance save the planet messages to the public, a lineup of fun-filled activities and mesmerizing performances including special appearance by IamNEETA has been planned as well.

Yuen also added that with the involvement of celebrities such as IamNEETA, it makes participating in Earth Hour more meaningful. Public can be entertained by the notable singing sensation and in the same time showing support to a good cause.

In conjunction to the Earth Hour event, many outlets in Sungei Wang Plaza had turned off their nonessential lights to support Earth Hour 2016. To embark on this initiative, members of media were being invited to join in Earth Hour initiative organised by Sungei Wang Plaza.

Before the lights off and candles light up ceremony, media were delighted to enjoy an appetizing food from U-café. A 3-course meal was served with the candle light ambience. Follow by a series of street performances lined up to entertain the media and guests throughout the evening. Media and guests
were amazed with the magic tricks performed by the street magician. They also enjoyed the percussion and beatboxing performances, follow by an eye-catching LED dance performance. Not only that, other special activities planned for media and guests such as tarot card reading, face sketching and having their personalised own hand wax moulding done!

As the time turned 8.30pm, the non-essential lights in the mall were turned off. Then, Yuen, Mr Joseph Teo - Head of Marketing Communications of Sungei Wang Plaza and IamNEETA together with media  were being invited to light up the candles with a ‘60+’ symbol right at the Main Entrance of Sungei Wang Plaza signifying 60 minutes of lights off.

“Preserving the planet will be a continuous movement by Sungei Wang Plaza. To that, Sungei Wang Plaza will kick start our GO GREEN campaign in which shared some go-green ideas to the public, tenants and owners”, Yuen added.
