Student competition: 2023 PacificLight Crea8 Sustainability Competition

The PacificLight Crea8 Sustainability Competition is back! The theme of the 2023 Crea8 Sustainability Competition is ‘The Green Key’, and encourages primary and secondary school students to explore what it means to be climate positive. Each year, Crea8 Sustainability adopts a different theme to inspire young Singaporeans to embark on their environmental journey through creative self-expression and critical thinking.

Primary students are encouraged to turn waste into something useful by creating upcycled artwork with items that cannot be recycled. Secondary and Tertiary students are challenged to articulate their visions and use their online voices to create a short video that encourages, educates and advocates on issues surrounding sustainability.

Primary Level – Giving Waste New Life
What happens to the things we can’t recycle? This year, we encourage children to deepen their understanding of recycling in an effort to develop a new sustainable relationship to what we commonly know as ‘waste’. Students are to create upcycled artwork from items that cannot be recycled, instead of using common items such as plastic bottles, bottle caps, or straws.

Secondary Level & Tertiary- #SustainabilityInAction
Made by youths for youths. This year, our #SustainabilityInAction challenges our youths from both secondary schools and tertiary institutions to speak up and use their online voice and talent to create a short video (equivalent to a TikTok/Instagram reel) to encourage, educate and advocate on issues surrounding sustainability.

The Crea8 Sustainability Competition encourages students to share their thoughts, demonstrate their ideas and share stories about the ways we can reduce our environmental impact.
