Volunteers Help Garner “I Save” Pledges
While most people were relaxing over the weekend, volunteers from ITE College West, Team Nila, School of Science and Technology, and Temasek Polytechnic were busy at various Singapore World Water Day (SWWD) roadshows to rally the community to take up the “I Save” Pledge and adopt the five water-saving tips.
Thanks to them, and many other volunteers and partners at various other roadshows and community events, more than 38,000 pledges have been garnered.
Mall and More
From 15 to 18 March, volunteers from ITE College West were at Pioneer Mall - one of SWWD partners who sponsored its venue - to spread the water message and get shoppers to make a commitment to save water.

SWWD roadshows also took place at several other malls, such as the Velocity @ Novena Square, Singapore Expo, Somerset 313 and White Sands. Click

On 17 March, 23 volunteers from Nanyang Technological University, together with 15 student volunteers from Jurong Junior College, Hwa Chong Junior College and Nanyang Polytechnic visited 22 blocks near Yuhua Community Centre. They reached out to more than 300 households to get them to make the “I Save” Pledge and practise the 5 water saving tips.
If you have not made the pledge, do it now. Make your way down to the different venues and do your part for water conservation.
