Our Coastal Conversation is a series of community dialogue sessions to engage and seek ideas and inputs from the public and stakeholders as we develop potential coastal protection measures.
Our Coastal Conversation: City-East Coast
PUB commenced a site-specific study along the City-East Coast stretch in May 2021, to explore possible coastal protection solutions against the threat of rising seas caused by climate change. The study covers 57.8km of the coastline, across three areas – Changi, East Coast-Marina and the Greater Southern Waterfront district. More information about the study can be found here.
Our Coastal Conversation officially kicked off in October 2022. 135 participants from diverse backgrounds engaged in lively discussions over two sessions on how we can accommodate and balance different needs and aspirations when planning for coastal protection measures.
Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Ms Grace Fu and Speaker of Parliament Mr Tan Chuan-Jin listening in and interacting with participants who shared about their aspirations for the coastal areas at the session.
Participants also discussed the trade-offs among different options with Senior Minister of State for Sustainability and the Environment Dr Koh Poh Koon and Senior Minister of State for National Development Mr Tan Kiat How who attended the second session on 28 Oct.
During the sessions, many participants shared a common desire to protect our cherished coastal areas and enhance our community spaces with innovative design and solutions. Check out the visual recordings on the interesting viewpoints raised.
