“CHANGE THE PRESENT, SAVE THE FUTURE.” CLIMATE ACTION EXHIBITION
Note: We are pleased to announce that the “Change the Present, Save the Future” exhibition will be re-opened from 19 Aug 2021 onwards! In support of the tightening of safe community measures to contain COVID-19, the CDL Green Gallery was temporarily closed from 22 July 2021 till 18 August 2021. With the gradual ease of such measures, guests can now visit the CDL Green Gallery in person again and enjoy this climate action exhibition. The exhibition can also be viewed virtually here anytime.
As the world faces climate and health emergencies, the urgency of climate action has never been clearer. With less than 10 years to achieve the UN SDGs, the global collaboration of public, private and people sectors is key to achieving a green future.
In partnership with NParks, we opened “Change the Present, Save the Future”, an exhibition on building climate resilience through global collaboration. Running from 15 July 2021 to March 2022 at the CDL Green Gallery, the exhibition is held in support of the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment’s Climate Action Week 2021 and aims to call for action to support both global and national climate efforts.
Leveraging contactless interactive displays, the exhibition takes visitors across four zones:
- Building Climate Resilience Through Global Collaboration
- Building A City in Nature
- Advancing A Low-Carbon and Resilient Built Environment
- Global Action Beyond Borders and Sectors
Officially launched by Ms Grace Fu, Minister for Sustainability and the Environment of Singapore, the opening ceremony was accompanied by a high-level panel discussion on the topic “Building a Sustainable Future – Collaboration Beyond Borders and Sectors”. Minister Grace Fu, who shared further details on the Singapore Green Plan 2030, was joined by distinguished panellists Ms Lynn McDonald, High Commissioner of Canada to Singapore; Mr R Raghunathan, World Wide Fund for Nature Singapore Chief Executive Officer; and Mr Max Loh, Singapore and Brunei Managing Partner, EY ASEAN IPO Leader, Ernst & Young. Ms Esther An, CDL Chief Sustainability Officer was the moderator for the panel discussion.
