A collaboration between Sustainable Singapore Gallery (SSG) and Central CDC, “Families Go Green!” will be SSG’s upcoming flagship event on 23rd November
This upcoming event specifically targets families as we believe that family is the primary unit of change and influence. We hope to help family members understand their crucial role in supporting and committing to the green movement as a family unit, and promote tight family bonds through family-friendly activities and participation in challenges that require team effort.
The main highlight of the event will be the National Family Upcycling Challenge where teams consisting of 2 to 5 members will compete to create an upcycled product with a mystery box that is filled with materials that are often simply discarded. Teams will also have tools to assist them with the creation of the upcycled product. Teams stand a chance of winning shopping vouchers!
There will also be a variety of other activities at the event such as:
1. UPmarket by CDC
2. Green Warrior! Inflatable Obstacle Course
3. Food Trucks
4. The Sustainable Singapore Gallery
5. Upcycle Workshops
6. Up Your Game! Carnival Games
7. An Instagram Giveaway

Health Talk Topic 1: The Heart Truth in Women
Speaker: Assistant Professor Chan Wan Xian, Senior Consultant, Department of Cardiology, NUHCS Programme Co-Director, Women’s Heart Health Programme, NUHCS
Heart disease and stroke remain the No. 1 killer of women in the world. Certain heart diseases are more common in women compared to men. Heart diseases in pregnancy are unique disease entities in women. In addition, very few women are aware of the impact of heart diseases on women and the importance of early prevention. Early prevention can simply start with our daily lifestyle.
Let’s get together to understand heart diseases in women and be updated on the risk factors involved!
