Our Projects

Escape Rooms @ Festival of Biodiversity 2018

What is Festival of Biodiversity? 

The Festival of Biodiversity is an annual event organised by the National Parks Board in collaboration with the Biodiversity Roundtable to create awareness and foster a sense of appreciation for our natural heritage.

And, why is there a need to run escape room in this festival?

To instil in Singaporeans the importance of knowing and conserving our local biodiversity through fun and engaging escape rooms.

Besides, the project aims to increase awareness of and interest in Singapore’s biodiversity among Singaporean youths and families so as to encourage their participation in local biodiversity conservation efforts.

If you would like to experience this unique escape room opportunity and have what it takes to commit to the training/events schedule, click "Apply" now!

This project is part of Youth Corps Singapore’s Leaders Programme.
