Mark the date – Sat 13 Sep 2014!
We are happy to welcome you back to this meaningful activity which has been conducted by organised volunteer groups in Singapore since 1992. This year in Singapore, we will conduct our cleanups on the morning of the second Saturday, or 13th September 2014.
The tide that Saturday morning is low (0.80m tide at 7:35 am) so this is a safe and efficient time. While most groups will conduct their cleanup on the 13th of September, you can suggest alternative dates on weekdays or the afternoon low tide on the 13th at non-recreational beaches. We will coordinate to avoid double counting and overlaps.
You can view a list of available sites at: http://iccs-status.rafflesmuseum.net
The ICCS team will meet to conduct Site Allocations Exercises based on the Organiser’s experience with ICCS, earliness of registration, familiarity with the site, volunteer preparation, and site difficulty. The results of these exercises will be announced at the end of April, May, and June.
Registrations will closed henceforth.
