PUB, Tribal returns to tackle climate change
Tribal Worldwide Singapore in partnership with the National Water Agency has launched the second instalment of PUB Splash Lab. The nationwide competition sees over 250 students from all five polytechnics tackle climate change, particularly water sustainability, with innovative ideas and solutions. The growing initiative sets out to fuel the conversation around sustainability among young people in higher learning institutes and cultivate water conservation from the ground up.
Over the course of four months, students put their heads together to design solutions that champion water sustainability and mitigate the effects of climate change. PUB received a total of 70 entries. Among this year’s thought-provoking innovations are talking shower heads, child-friendly taps, and a mobile game that teaches water saving practices.
“Over the years, we’ve partnered with various stakeholders to create a culture where every Singaporean, starting from a young age, values every drop of water,” said Cindy Keng, Director of the 3P Network Department at PUB. “The theme of this year’s PUB Splash Lab reflects the growing threat of climate change, including water sustainability and rising sea levels. We are heartened to see the quality and diversity of the submissions received. It’s a true testament to the creativity and passion of our nation’s youth in tackling these challenges.”
A short video capturing the public’s reactions to the winning teams’ work has been shared on PUB’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
