I thank the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) for the good news ("Green goals 'on track to being met by 2030'"; Nov 1).
I am especially grateful for the plan to increase Singapore's green corridors to 180km by 2030. Doing so will bring our residents closer to nature and teach our younger generation to appreciate nature.
Other initiatives, such as reducing reliance on cars and a bicycle-sharing scheme, will also help inculcate an environmentally friendly culture. Cycling is also a healthy habit.
Additionally, the plan to use alternative energy sources, such as solar power, is sustainable and innovative.
Singapore is an urbanised city, but our environment should not be neglected. I applaud MEWR for its hard work and I hope it keeps it up.
Protecting our environment will benefit not only ourselves but our future generations as well.
