As part of community outreach initiatives by the Better World Team, a Kayak Waterway Clean-up will be held on Saturday, 14 September 2019.
The Better World Team aims to provide volunteers with insight into the many Non-Profit Organisations (NGOs), Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs) and Independent groups that are doing good work for our community and environment. The Team strives to be able to allow volunteers to experience such programmes to garner interest so that they would continue to inspire others to take action.
The Kayak Waterway Clean-up provides participants with the opportunity to be in direct contact with nature and to learn about the impact of litter on wildlife and the environment. Participants will be introduced to the basics of paddling and visit litter hot-spots while exploring the Kallang Basin. To create awareness for such programmes and encourage more ground-up efforts from the community to do their part for marine environment sustainability, participants will discover and learn how litter accumulates in the water and get a better idea of the magnitude of resources that go into cleaning the environment.
