'Keep Clean, Singapore!' 2018 - Launch and PHC Walk

Apr 24, 2018

Each year, Singapore celebrates the Keep Singapore Clean movement with a month-long community clean-up festival – Keep Clean, Singapore!, spearheaded by the Public Hygiene Council (PHC). This year marks the 50th anniversary of Keep Singapore Clean Campaign launched by the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew. PHC continues his legacy by working with partners and public to advocate, the value of maintaining cleanliness beyond our doorsteps.

The message this year, “I PHC (Pick up at Home & Community). Do you?”, plays on the name of the Public Hygiene Council and celebrates social actions beyond litter picking. We invite all Singaporeans to Pick up at Home & Community. For example, wipe down after use of public toilets, leave a clean table for the next diner at public eateries, clear errant litter or set in order strewn bikes around the neighbourhood.

Programme highlight:

PHC Walk

Location: Around one-north, Timbre+
Time: 9.00am to 12.00pm

To mark the official launch of Keep Clean, Singapore! this year, PHC is organising the inaugural PHC Walk, a community walking event, at one-north on 29 April at 9 am. The event is set to attract over 3,500 members from local communities to walk together and raise awareness on public cleanliness responsibility. Look forward to a scenic walk followed by family fun at the end of the PHC Walk. A family carnival awaits at Timbre+ with life-sized playsets, stilt walkers, air hockey games, food and entertainment (including a live performance) and an exclusive meet and greet opportunity with star players from Singapore Premier League. The public can also pledge their support for a sustainable Singapore by taking the Climate Action Pledge at Timbre+ or at www.climateaction.sg.

The PHC Walk is an important show of solidarity to keep Singapore clean. “I PHC. Do you?” is not just a one-day exercise. It is a habit and lifestyle of personal responsibility for cleanliness beyond our doorstep.
