International Coastal Cleanup, Singapore
International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is an annual event that encourages people around the world to take action against trash. ICC was first held in Singapore in 1992 and this year’s cleanup takes place on Sep 17. Visit coastalcleanup.nus.edu.sg for more information.
Waterways Watch Society
Waterways Watch Society (WWS) looks after six of Singapore’s key rivers and canals. Since waste in the waterways washes out into the sea, they play a key role in protecting the coast as well. WWS identifies sources of pollution then comes up with solutions to them. Visit www.wws.org.sg for more information.
Singapore Environment Council
Established in 1995, the Singapore Environment Council (SEC), an independent NGO, conducts regular coastal cleanup activities. To find out more about the council, visit www.sec.org.sg. To put your name down as a volunteer for their next beach cleaning session, send an email to email@example.com.
