crea8 sustainability competition

Established in 2016, the PacificLight Crea8 Sustainability Competition aims to encourage young Singaporeans to step up to the challenge of tackling environmental issues by reducing their carbon footprint and leading a more sustainable lifestyle.

The Crea8 Sustainability competition started off as an art competition but has since evolved to include essay and video components to enable all youths in Singapore to participate.

PacificLight continues to inspire young Singaporeans to tackle environmental challenges and demonstrate their passion for a sustainable Singapore. The Crea8 Sustainability Competition encourages students to share their thoughts, demonstrate their ideas and share stories about the ways we can reduce our environmental impact.

2023 Crea8 Sustainability Competition 

The fate of our future lies in all our hands. In an effort to nurture and equip our youths to be leaders and change-makers, the 2023 Crea8 Sustainability Competition follows the theme of ,”The Green Key”, aimed at empowering students with the knowledge and drive to make a difference.

Primary Level – Giving Waste New Life

What happens to the things we can’t recycle? This year, we encourage children to deepen their understanding of recycling in an effort to develop a new sustainable relationship to what we commonly know as ‘waste’. Students are to create upcycled artwork from items that cannot be recycled, instead of using common items such as plastic bottles, bottle caps, or straws.

Secondary Level & Tertiary- #SustainabilityInAction

Made by youths for youths. This year, our #SustainabilityInAction challenges our youths from both secondary schools and tertiary institutions to speak up and use their online voice and talent to create a short video (equivalent to a TikTok/Instagram reel) to encourage, educate and advocate on issues surrounding sustainability.
