In the Philippines, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) noted that the number of communities and establishments joining Earth Hour has been increasing.
The WWF said it partnered with Megaworld, a leading real estate developer, in the switch-off activity in its 17-hectare Eastwood City township in Quezon City.
Kevin Tan, Megaworld first vice president and commercial division head, said the event “signifies Megaworld’s commitment in building townships that espouse environmental sustainability.”
… Sofiah Jamil, adjunct research associate at Singapore’s S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, who has been campaigning for environmental causes in Southeast Asia, welcomed the funding initiative.
“At the very basic level, such crowdfunding activities can potentially increase the visibility of Earth Hour and in turn awareness on environmental action,” Sofiah told AFP.
