Trails

Participants in a green event.

Our Trails allow participants to see, hear, smell, touch and even taste sustainability related topics. By weaving in relevant local context, these experiential learning journeys invite participants to explore the relationship between different topics such as heritage, culture and sustainability, and appreciate different perspectives.

Walk with us, so that we can learn together.

Youth Corp Singapore Chinatown Tour

We led 21 young participants through Chinatown to educate them on the prevalence of single-use packaging. With their help, we interviewed Chinatown hawkers who continue to use disposables e.g. plastic cutlery to understand their reasons for doing so. The young participants then had a lively brainstorming session to discuss solutions to the disposables problem.

Semakau Landfill Tour

A one-off event in June 2018 that became so popular that we repeated it 5 times. In total, more than 300 curious members of the public have signed up for a tour of Semakau Landfill, the final resting place of most of Singapore’s rubbish. Participants came away with a much better understanding of how trash is processed and a determination to improve their waste disposal practices in the future.

E-Waste Recycling Facility Visit

As part of the community engagement, we organised a visit to the electronic waste recycling facility for members of public. Participants not just joined in a physical visit, but also took part in the actual recycling of items such as fridges. By experiencing for themselves the amount of waste generated every month, we invite participants to start making small changes in the way they create and deal with e-waste in Singapore.

Sustainability makes my heart goes “Bedok-Bedok”

Together with the Geography Teachers’ Association, we created a learning trail to bring the concept of sustainability into real life. The trail within Bedok showcased green places of interests as well as how actions from individuals and the community shape behaviour. In doing so, we help to make it easier for people to relate to concepts and kickstart their sustainability habits.

2019 Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon

Our largest event yet, with a whopping 51,000 participants – small wonder that we ended up with 23 bins of plastic bottles and cans, salvaged 1,300 over towels and a haul of 525.5kg of banana peels at the end of the event! Our army of volunteers worked tirelessly both day and night encouraging the participants to keep the running routes clean and to remind them to dispose of their trash in the proper bins.
