Come for the first FREE public screening of the 'Ubin, Sayang' at Sentosa on 17 Mar (Sat) 3-4pm (with FREE admission to Sentosa*). This gorgeous film by Rachel Quek and her team features R.U.M. and the people of Ubin.
'Ubin, Sayang' traces the journey of Xiao Ting as she learns from the stories of mangrove restoration and kampong living. In the context of modern Singaporean nostalgia for the kampong, the film brings together different perspectives on what the kampong spirit truly entails, and discusses its implications for us today.

How can we make Ubin's mangroves more appealing?

Everyone’s opinion matters to the R.U.M. team as we want to make mangroves more accessible for all after the restoration work is done. Thus, to find out what people’s current perceptions of mangroves are and how we can help to introduce mangroves to everyone, R.U.M. also conducted a short online survey to aid in designing the restoration work.
