Join us for this discussion on turning the KTM railway into a Green Corridor, led by the Nature Society (Singapore) and local writers Madeleine Lee, Suchen Christine Lim & South African writer, Melissa de Villiers.

See details below.

The Green Corridor Forum

Saturday, 14 May, 2.00pm – 4.00pm, level 16, POD, National Library (100 Victoria Street)

The ‘Green Corridor’ forum is a public discussion on the idea of converting the Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) railway track literally into a “green corridor”, free of urban re-development plans once the land parcel is handed over to Singapore on 1 July 2011. This includes reasons why Singapore should protect the natural biodiversity already existing along the railway tracks as well as the community benefits that it brings.

The discussion is led by the Nature Society of Singapore and is joined by established local writers including Madeleine Lee, Suchen Christine Lim & South African writer, Melissa de Villiers.

Participants of ‘Bear Fruit: Railway Memories’ will also be presenting their works based on their memories of the Malayan railway.

This forum is open to the public.

Registration is required & can be made adding to cart before check out.
