EARTH HOUR, DARE TO BARE SIGN UP AND 11 YEAR OLD ART PRODIGY : A MIX OF HAPPENINGS THIS MARCH AND APRIL 2015
Eco-Mall joins millions across the globe to celebrate Earth Hour on 28th March 2015. City Square Mall will be switching off lights in selected areas, and extinguishing other non-essential lighting, from 8.30pm to 9.30pm in an effort to increase awareness of energy conservation for this year’s Earth Hour. Both before and after the Earth Hour lights off, City Square Mall will be hosting family activities at Basement 1 Fountain Square to bring focus on resource-saving too. The highlight to this lights-off Earth Hour at City Square Mall will be the FREE outdoor screening of the family movie, The Croods. Watch as The Croods discover new technologies and the importance of family, love and kinship in a time before electricity.
