Register by the 20th of August to join this Big Beach Clean-Up action on Friday 6th of September 2019 - in the early morning, when the tide is out and the air is still cool.

 

The French Chamber of Commerce supports the efforts of International Coastal Clean-Up Singapore (ICCS) for the third year, by leading a Big Beach Clean-Up action on Friday 6th of September 2019 - in the early morning, when the tide is out and the air is still cool.

 

Away from our eyes and the nice public beaches of Singapore, the marine and coastal wildlife of this small island is suffocating under tons of trash brought in every day by the tides. The ICCS volunteering programme aims to remove trash and collect data on debris from shorelines, waterways and beaches. The work of thousands of volunteers helps to protect coastal mangroves and wildlife. The information collected serves to educate the public on marine debris issues and to encourage positive change.

 

Note: Due to the nature of the trashes on that beach and the wild environment, we will accept registration only for adults. Thanks for your kind understanding.

We invite you to do your part in helping to save the marine and coastal wildlife of Singapore, and to champion environmental awareness locally. By volunteering your company, you demonstrate a shared sense of camaraderie as responsible citizens in our host country. French companies are often cited as example for their Sustainability and CSR awareness and actions.

For Two years in the row, 400 participants from 40 companies gathered to collect and record trash data - a total of 4.7 tons of trash in only 2 sessions!

Because together we are stronger, let’s team up and work toward a good cause, and make a big impact on our environment, while meeting peers who share the same concerns.

Let's do more this year! 

A participation of 15SGD per person will cover the expenses:

  • gloves for everyone 
  • weighting scales 
  • writing boards and pens for data recording
  • the shuttle bus from and to Tanah Merah MRT Station 
  • a light welcome snack 
  • a video and photos we will share with you and you can use for your communication 

 

For groups over 10 persons please contact directly Sylvie Berthaud sberthaud(@)fccsingapore.com  who will help smooth your registration process.
