Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's message on climate change at the 2019 National Day Rally hit especially close to home for me in November 2019, when he planted a tree in a cluster of seven (above) in the estate where I live.

No one had expected the urgency of tackling climate change to be overshadowed and underscored by the devastating Covid-19 pandemic shortly after, in January last year.

One year on, the world is still grappling with the unprecedented health crisis and economic fallout from Covid-19.

Today, the seven trees stand tall, reminding us of the growing importance of environmental and social responsibility to ensure a sustainable future for many generations to come.

Here's to a happy 2021!
