What is this workshop about?This workshop gives you a snapshot of the history and transformation of Pulau Semakau and Pulau Sakeng to our only offshore landfill in Singapore, surrounded by mangrove and marine habitats. Learn how your daily waste each day translates into an impact on these habitats and brainstorm ways in which you can make a positive difference!
This workshop is useful for all who are interested to learn more as well as passionate members of the community who would like to brainstorm ideas on what can be done and finding like-minded volunteers to make a difference.
