WYNIST MASS COASTAL CLEANUP

WYNIST MASS COASTAL CLEANUP

 

Greetings from the Singapore Scout Association (SSA).

 

We are pleased to inform that the Singapore Sailing Federation is organising the WYNIST Mass Coastal Cleanup in celebration of SG57 and as part of the Singapore Regatta. The event will take place on 24th July 2022 along East Coast Park, where fleets of boats will sail past as part of the regatta route.  In support of the event, the Sea Scout RoundTable extends the invite to all members of the Association to participate in this cleanup.

 

Participation in the clean-up will allow members to understand the sources and impacts of marine trash and how they can play a part in the conservation of the marine environment. Through this experience, it is intended that Scouts will also be inspired to take on the Earth Tribe Initiative: Plastic Tide Turners.  Scouts who are keen to pursue the Plastic Tide Turner Challenge can approach their Area Representative (Better World) for more information.

 

Please refer to Annex A for further details.

 

You are encouraged to register your Scouts via MSDS’s Youth Programme Registration portal: http://intranet.scout.org.sg by Friday, 15th July 2022, 2359 hrs.  Kindly note that only accepted registrations will be duly notified.

 

Should you require any clarifications, please contact Ms Emily Ho, Executive (Programmes) via emily.ho@scout.org.sg or contact us at 6259 2858.

 

We look forward to your enthusiastic participation.
