Last day to sign up for the NGC-NEA Eco-Run

We were recently informed of the NGC-NEA Eco-Run, organised by National Geographic Channel (NGC) and the National Environment Agency (NEA). More details below.

In support of the Youth for the Environment Day in April, National Geographic Channel (NGC) has partnered the National Environment Agency (NEA) to launch their first ever NGC-NEA Eco-Run to promote recycling efforts and awareness of environmental sustainability through youths. The run will take place on 20th April 2013 at the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park.

The inaugural NGC-NEA Eco-Run is non-competitive. Youths aged 13 to 25 can opt to run either 2.5km or 5km for the environment. To promote recycling efforts, participants can enlist support from family and friends to pledge the collection of recyclable items online. Awards will be given out to individuals and schools for the most recyclables and pledges collected. The event is also open to the public who can visit various activity booths at the Eco-Carnival and enjoy performances by the winners of the Eco Music Challenge.
