Sustainable Singapore Gallery 

Gallery 1 showcases the environmental challenges of today. Central to this gallery is the “organic tree”. Illuminated by a play of three colours, it symbolises the uncertain state of our present environment. Keep an eye out for the feature wall made entirely from NEWater bottles. NEWater, is ultra-clean water that has been treated with advanced membrane technologies to a very high standard. It marks an achievement in Singapore’s green efforts. Its stringent purification and treatment processes helps to ensure we enjoy a sustainable water supply as the recycled water can be reused many times over.

Rewinding back a few decades, Gallery 2 recounts the clean up of the Singapore and Kallang Rivers. In the 1970s, both rivers were like open sewers, choked with rubbish and emitting an unbearable stench. Learn how Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew, as Prime Minister of Singapore then, challenged a nation and brought about irrevocable change. Through the clean-up spanning ten years, witness Singapore’s development from independence towards a mature city practicing environmental awareness.

Gallery 3 features the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters programme, launched by PUB in 2007. See the programme in action, as waterways throughout Singapore are revamped and beautified. Discover how these rejuvenated waters bring communities together and forge a common need to cherish this precious liquid. Visitors even have the chance to create their own ideal waterways around their homes!
