International Volunteer Day @ Temasek Poly (Nov)

Temasek Polytechnic Community Service Club (TPCSC) invited Earth Society to set up a booth during their International Volunteer Day event on 28 and 29 Nov to promote environmental awareness in Temasek Poly.

TPCSC get to know about Earth Society through TP Green Interest Group (TPGIG) which invited us to conduct a Global Warming talk in a previous event.

TPCSC also invited other NGOs such as Food Bank, Lion’s Befrienders and Club Rainbow to promote their causes in this event.

On 28 and 29 Nov, Earth Society team set up a booth in Temasek Poly to pass Eco-leaflets to the students. Students can also play a Quiz of guessing the amount of Green House Gas (GHG) produced when we produce different types of food.

The location of the booth is just outside the Library. Thus, we have a good flow of traffic and many students came to our booth to get Eco info from us. We manned the booth from 11 am to 3 pm on both days.

Ms Charlotte Gayondato, volunteer Leader of TPCSC, wrote us an appreciation email after the event : “I would like to thank Earth Society for participating in International Volunteer Day 2016 ! I hope you have had a positive experience in Temasek Polytechnic and collaborating with TPCSC. “

We are glad that many student groups are initiating programs to promote various causes in their school campus. May the youths show care and concern to the society and take actions to build a more sustainable future for everyone.
