GREEN LEARNING PROGRAMMES

 
Further expanding on the green learning journey, NLB develops eco-themed programming together with partners such as the National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS), National Environment Agency (NEA), National Parks Board (NParks) and more.

 

Storytelling Experiences

My Tree House organises both Chinese and English storytelling sessions over the weekends. Featuring regular volunteers as the storytellers, My Tree House is also a popular venue for programme partners who routinely bring in performances, puppet shows and storytelling and craft sessions.
