We were invited to present a public 30-minute composting workshop during the annual Central Clean, Green & Sustainable Singapore Carnival (CGSS).
Organized by National Environment Agency-Central Regional Office (NEA-CRO) and Central Singapore Community Development Council (CS CDC), the event aimed to inspire community members of Central Singapore to lead an environmentally-friendly lifestyle. It included interactive stage presentations, games, activities, experiential exhibitions, and many more.
During the brief workshop, the audience learned the basics of composting, and watched a demonstration of how to create a DIY compost bin using simple, everyday materials. The session ended with a quiz where the instructor gave out prizes for correct answers.
We’d like to thank everyone who expressed positive feedback about the workshop in person and on social media! We look forward to conducting more public workshops in future. Do stay tuned for more updates!
Here are some pictures of the event:
