World Water Day: Join the Aveda Walk for Water

The Singapore Environment Council and Aveda Singapore have organised a walk for 20 March (Sunday), from 8am – 11am at the Marina Barrage. More details below.

The Singapore Environment Council (SEC) and Aveda Singapore are supporting PUB, the national water agency in commemorating 2011 World Water Day.  The purpose of this walk is to bring home the message to protect our water resources, and to raise awareness of the struggles that people around the world face in accessing clean water. The walk route itself stretches under 3 km, so it’s a symbolic act.  The walk will take place within and around the Marina Barrage, from 8 am on 20th March 2011.

Registration is necessary, as Aveda and PUB will be giving out goodie bags.  PUB will also be issuing free World Water Day T-shirts which participants have to wear to the event.  Aveda is also looking into chartering buses to ferry participants to Marina Barrage from a central point – the details are currently being worked out.

Here is the official programme for the day, and also information on the Aveda Walk for Water event.  For your information, there are many activities happening at around the same time at the Marina Barrage on 20th March.  Please note that the later part of the programme is restricted and not open to all.  After the walk and speech given by the GOH, your participants  can redeem their goodie bags and if interested, view the exhibitions on display or pay for quick massage services made available by Aveda  -they are raising funds for green causes and the SEC.

Date: 20th March 2011, Sunday

Venue: Marina Barrage, 8 Marina Gardens Drive

Time: 8 am start of walk (7.30 am registration)
