Álon & Singapore Water
In Singapore, Álon supports and hosts dialogues, art & photography exhibits and other engagements with the aim of raising awareness and collaborating with private, public and philanthropic organisations interested in minimizing their water footprints.
On July 7th, 2011, “Arts & Culture with a Cause: In Honour of Water” premiered an alternative approach to connecting people, planet and philanthropy by bringing globally relevant causes – such as Women & Water and Water Security in the Middle East, to the lifestyle segment of Singapore, in line with Singapore International Water Week. Álon & Patrons hosted a private cocktail with social talks to raise awareness on critical water issues, alongside boutique lifestyle products and water artworks supporting social entrepreneurship.
Singapore – a Water Country
Singapore is a “water country”, surrounded by water along with its advantages and disadvantages. The water sector in Singapore can seen in three categories: drinking water, delta and maritime.
Every year around June, the country celebrates Singapore International Water Week (SIWW), a global platform for the sharing and co-creation of innovative water solutions with flagship programs:
• Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize
• Water Leaders Summit
• Water Convention
• Water Expo
• Business Forums
Singapore’s Ministry of Environment & Water Resources (MEWR) aims to move from maintaining good environmental performance in the short term to attaining environmental sustainability in the long run. Together with its two statutory boards, the National Environment Agency (NEA) and Public Utilities Board (PUB), the national water agency, MEWR continues to manage Singapore’s limited resources and address Singapore’s environmental sustainability challenges through innovation, vibrant partnerships and co-operation across the 3P sectors – private, public and people.
