Singapore Our Home SG75

is an exciting annual competition that encourages every generation to build a legacy for the next.

Renewing the vision of our founding fathers led by the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, the competition captures the
pioneering spirit and aspirations for tomorrow through words, pictures and multi-media. 


This year's theme, Sustainability : Resilience and Inclusiveness in Fighting COVID-19, invites submissions in
essays, pictures and motion media to express the strength of our community, emphasising the collective fight involving every walk of society. Every person is vital to every solution.


COVID-19 substantially changed the way of life for people of Singapore and countries globally.


Singapore as a country has never faced a pandemic of this proportion. The SARS virus of 2003 pales in comparison to COVID-19.


This may be a precursor of what is to come.


Unfortunately, COVID-19 may not be the last major pandemic that will hit Singapore or the world.


What is your vision and plan if it happens again?

How will your reflections and experiences shape and encourage future Singaporeans?

Share your vision of a sustainable Singapore - for every person, for every generation



We are more than a city
“a blighted urban jungle of concrete destroys the human spirit.”

– Mr Lee Kuan Yew



The “Garden City” campaign began in 1963. In November 1971, efforts to beautify Singapore resulted in the first “Tree Planting Day.”

Our Founding Fathers built a national determination to include green lungs as part of the cityscape. Despite the demands of a burgeoning population and industrial development on a small island, this determination led to the devotion of a notable portion of land to parks and nature reserves. Despite an increase in the population by 68 per cent - from 2.7 million to 4.6 million between 1986 and 2007 - the area covered by greenery on the island grew from 35 to 46 per cent1.

The climate crisis, water security, global warming, the search for new ways to use the little land we have, and a host of new and old challenges await us.

It’s your turn to address our future challenges before our very existence is threatened.

Sustainability for a home kept safe from future challenges, a place where the human spirit can thrive.



More than an individual
“Be firm, be calm.
We are going to have a multi-racial nation in Singapore.”



Heeding the words of Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Mr Othman Wok (1924-2017) decided to play a part in the building of Singapore because he believed in the necessity and future of a multi-racial, multi-religious nation.

His conviction and vision brought comfort to an uncertain and potentially divided nation during Singapore’s independence in 1965. The vision to build a multi-racial home has been an important part of our sustainable development on the world’s stage.

Unity, community-spirit, inclusiveness and conviction of our young people - beyond technology and interconnected roads – build a sustainable and resilient Singapore.

What can destroy us from within? Are we a threat to ourselves? Can we preserve our values one generation after another?

'You cannot just, like Kuan Yew says, go on auto-pilot...Our future generations must continue to build on things. Do not lose focus on sensitive issues such as race, language and religion.'

- Mr Othman Wok (1924-2017), pioneer and recipient of the Order of Nila Utama.
