Debunking the myth that young Singaporeans lack idealism, more than 300 young volunteers lent their hands in various environmental conservation initiatives organized by Outward Bound Singapore (OBS) at Pulau Ubin and Coney Island earlier last weekend while all of us were still sleeping.

This is to commemorate the first death anniversary of Singapore’s founding father Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew and honor his legacy of a clean and green Singapore.

These youths, aged between 15 and 35 years old proactively did their part for nature through reforestation, coastal and swamp cleanup, invasive weed clearing, flotsam fence maintenance, species survey and bird box construction. This is the second time OBS has organized this large-scale outdoor conservation classroom, with overwhelming participation.

To further encourage youths to appreciate the environment, OBS will also be opening its campus to the public for the first time for a series of March school holiday Nature Appreciation Programme.

A total of 11 workshops will be organized featuring activities such as nature treasure hunts, mangrove appreciation and nature photography to promote family bonding and a greater understanding of Pulau Ubin’s history, geography and ecology.
