Dear Members and Friends,

As you know, your Chamber believes that true sustainability for our planet, us humans and all businesses is consuming less of the earth’s resources and re-using and recycling more of what we do use. In other words, our future lies in achieving a circular economy.

In support of that goal and of Singapore’s year of Towards Zero Waste, I am delighted to announce a collaboration between your Chamber and your fellow member James Cook University, Singapore (JCU). It’s a video competition for students in all Institutes of Higher Learning with an attractive cash price of SGD 1,000 to the winner of each of 3 categories.

Why students? Because they and their descendants are going to have to deal with the mess we and previous generations have created. We need their open minds and their ideas.

SICC-JCU Circular Economy + Sustainability Competition
  • 60 seconds videos that raise awareness on sustainable habits and encourage positive actions
  • 3 categories:
    • Correct use of recycling bins
    • Food waste reduction
    • Management of e-waste
  • Key Dates:
Please tell your children and all your young friends!

With my thanks and best regards.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
