Why This Matters

As the third most important social issue among youth, over 2 in 5 youths are concerned about Global Warming and Environmental Issues¹. Over 7.23 million tonnes of waste was generated in 2019 here in Singapore, of which only 4.25 million tonnes was recycled², and youths are taking action to tackle this issue. Over 1 in 2 youths have participated in environmental conservation efforts, such as recycling, in the past year³. This has doubled from 1 in 4 youths in 2016.

Our Vision

We want to address climate change and have a clean and eco- friendly city to live in – for us and generations to come.
