YOUTH4CLIMATE FESTIVAL

Initiated by City Developments Limited (CDL), the Youth4Climate Festival aims to provide Singapore’s youth with a platform to express their passion for the environment and wishes for a greener future.

In partnership with National Parks Board and National Environment Agency , CDL presented the inaugural Y4C Concert 2018 to wrap up the year of activities promoting climate action. Held at the Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Youth4Climate Concert 2018 provided a platform for youths to celebrate climate action through their voices and performances over two evenings. The concert served as an avenue for young green advocates to showcase a diverse line-up of dance, song and instrumental performances to galvanise likeminded individuals to step up and work together for a sustainable future.

This year, Youth4Climate returns as part of a more vibrant Youth4Climate Festival 2019, from 20 to 21 July 2019 , with an exciting line up of activities.
