33 Singapore landmarks will turn blue every Thursday, 8 pm, in May 2020 as part of the #SeeItBlue campaign. This concerted effort seeks to highlight the importance of mental wellness and also serves as a sign of solidarity during these COVID-19 times.
Singapore Landmarks Turn Blue
The different venues and landmarks that are turning blue to participate in the #SeeItBlue campaign every Thursday evening include ArtScience Museum, Esplanade, Fullerton Hotel, Gardens by the Bay, Helix Bridge, One Faber Group, ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands, Cavanagh Bridge, National Gallery Singapore and Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall.
The importance of mental well-being has come to the fore in recent times with people spending time at home as part of the Circuit Breaker measures in Singapore.
