Beach Clean Up + Coffee with a Cause

In celebration of World Ocean Day this June, HYC invites you to participate in a beach clean-up event organised by the Ocean Purpose Project

In celebration of World Ocean Day this June, Tzu Chi Humanistic Youth Centre invites you to participate in a beach clean-up event organised by the Ocean Purpose Project (OPP). This event aims to raise awareness about ocean conservation and bring the community together for a day of meaningful action.

Following the clean-up, participants will gather for a relaxed and informative "Coffee with a Cause" session. This session offers a chance to network, share experiences, and learn more about the importance of ocean conservation from OPP representatives. Instead of coffee, complimentary tea will be provided from Traditional Herb Garden next to OPP Beach Hub (Singapore's first and only garden fertilised entirely by seaweed that actively sequesters atmospheric carbon!)

Participating in this event allows you to:

•⁠ ⁠Make a tangible impact on reducing ocean pollution.

•⁠ ⁠Support local social enterprises and ethical initiatives.

•⁠ ⁠Connect with like-minded individuals passionate about the environment.

•⁠ ⁠Learn about sustainable practices and how you can contribute to ocean conservation efforts.

How to Participate:

1.⁠ ⁠Register: Sign up through Eventbrite, the registration will 5 days before event date.

2.⁠ ⁠What to Bring: Participants are advised to bring reusable water bottles, sunscreen, and hat for the clean-up. Trash bags and other necessary materials will be provided.

3.⁠ ⁠Dress Code: Wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes suitable for walking on the beach.

Join us this June for a meaningful day of action, community, and learning. Together, we can make a difference and celebrate World Ocean Day by protecting the beautiful beaches and oceans we all cherish.
