Located at the Eco Lake, the closing of the Youth4Climate Festival 2019 featured a movie screening of Disney’s “Moana”, which delved into the topic of climate change and man’s relationship with Mother Nature. Attendees were able to enjoy free flow popcorn and candy floss while under the stars with their families and friends.

Featuring Singapore’s bicentennial-inspired games, this treasure hunt also taught families and children the five key heritage sites around the Singapore Botanic Gardens and reasons why climate action is critical to preserve the world we have.

Located at the Shaw Foundation Symphony stage, the concert featured a 150-strong combined school choir and angklung ensemble from participating primary and secondary schools, young musical proteges such as Jacob Cheng, performers from Dancecare and a song medley performed by song duo, Uber Duber! Attendees received attractive door gifts and also enjoyed free-flow popcorn and candy floss.
