31 Mar-1 Apr: Code Blue features our reefs at NUS

Code Blue introduces our reefs and shores, and ways that you CAN make a difference for them.

Come and support the team who have put this together at the National University of Singapore!

The term Code Blue is commonly used to signify life-threatening emergencies. The colour blue is also associated with Earth's oceans. Hence, CODE BLUE calls for attention and action to conserve local marine life.

Timed to coincide with the International Year of the Reefs 2008, CODE BLUE will join the worldwide marine conservation campaign on March 31 with a two-day special event featuring recruitment for marine conservation volunteers, a marine photo exhibition and a one-of-a-kind environmental display at the NUS Central Forum.

The 2-day special event will feature the following highlights:

  • Marine photo exhibition;
  • One-of-a-kind environmental exhibition;
  • Marine conservation exhibition;
  • Pledge booth for participants to sign pledge cards in support of marine conservation; and
  • Recruitment drive for a variety of marine conservation activities and also for Roots & Shoots Youth United youth leaders
CODE BLUE is a communications campaign aimed at advocating local marine conservation efforts among NUS students. The campaign was initiated by pioneer members of Roots & Shoots Youth United, the NUS chapter of the international Roots & Shoots organisation that spearheads youth-driven community and environmental projects.

Time: 10am-6pm
Venue: Central Forum, the National University of Singapore
