A line could be crossed and you would slowly cease to be - A new play by Andrew Sutherland

The world as we know it is on the cusp of serious environmental issues. We all know that. Creating awareness about the same is the least we can do to start our remedial actions to save the planet. “A Line Could be Crossed And You Would Slowly Cease to Be” is a powerful informative play presented by Andrew Sutherland that sheds light on the seriousness of the environmental issues that we face today. Performed by ITI’s 2019 graduating cohort, this is the world premiere of the play. From tackling worldly issues like weather changes converging on the equator, dying fish and disappearing beaches to symbolic issues; a mother looking for a lost son, humans looking for otters and merlion keeping track of changes, the play shows us how human beings and their inter-relationships are affected against the backdrop of climate change. It is indeed a must-watch. Find more information here.

It is high time we did something collectively for our planet. And keeping our surroundings clean and green is definitely a starting point. The September beach clean up and picnic is up on the 8th and this time the focus will be on the beach next to Bedok Jetty, East Coast Park. Join hands to clean up one of the main recreation centres of the city, and play a part in saving the water bodies.
After the clean-up there will also be a zero-waste potluck picnic; a chance to meet new people, make new friends and discuss new ways to save our world. Everyone is encouraged to bring some food as well, though not too much and everyone is required to bring it in their own containers as well, not disposable ones of course.
You can also bring your pets on leashes if you’d like. So get together and do something worthwhile with family and friends. Learn more about the event here.
Free guided walk at Chek Jawa Boardwalk
Singaporeans often forget to enjoy the beauty of their own country. It is always the foreigners that indulge in tourist experiences. This time, why not participate in a guided walk event enjoying the Chek Jawa Boardwalk where you can find the coolest places to hang out amidst the Singapore mangroves. A nature walk of sorts where you can relax with your family and friends and reconnect with nature.
Being rich in biodiversity, you will be able to find large varieties of plants and wildlife at Chek Jawa, including monitor lizards, rare spiders and plants, fiddler crabs, mudskippers, wild boars and many fruit trees. If you’re lucky you may get a chance to see the Oriental Pied Hornbill, the White-bellied Sea Eagle, and the giant Atlas Moth as well. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Find out more details here.
