Singapore is getting a new greener glow up.
As of February 10, 2021, the Singapore green pledge is up and running. That means plans are in the works to fulfil the aim of tripling cycle paths and creating 1,000ha of green space. [Featured Image: Christian Anasco, Unsplash].
This pledge was introduced by Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu in response to a motion on climate change in the last cabinet meeting.
Grace Fu, in her Facebook post, said: “Sustainability is about you and me…The Green Plan will be enabled by a Green Government and a Green Citizenry.”
This plan is to be supported by the whole government and headed up by five different ministries including Education; National Development; Sustainability and the Environment; Trade and Industry; and Transport.
On top of the plans for more green space and cycling lane, proposals include reducing household water consumption, expanding rail networks, increasing solar energy and more.
Speaking on the new plans, Prime Minister Lee said: “We will do all we can to combat climate change.”
Look out for the new green spaces, cycle lanes and more popping up in the next nine years then!
