April 22 declared as \"Youth for the Environment Day\"

SINGAPORE: The government has declared April 22 as the "Youth for the Environment Day", coinciding with the annual celebration of the international Earth Day. The move is part of efforts to promote clean and green living, according to the National Environment Agency (NEA), a statutory board of the Ministry for the Environment and Water Resources tasked to protect the city-state's air, land and water resources. The NEA, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, said April 22 will be marked in the national education calendar for all schools in Singapore. The schools will observe the day by organising environment-related activities to promote energy efficiency, recycling, good public health practices, nature appreciation and a litter-free environment. Over 130 schools are expected to observe the Youth for the Environment Day.
