Community in Nature Initiative

The Community in Nature (CIN) initiative is a national movement to connect and engage different groups in the community to conserve Singapore’s natural heritage. Launched in September 2011, this initiative is aligned with NParks’ City in a Garden vision and Singapore’s National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan. CIN brings together all of NParks’ nature-related events, activities and programmes, to better reach out to the community to encourage them to bond over and with nature. One can take things at their own pace yet have the chance to grow from being a casual observer to become a more active participant in acting for our biodiversity.



  • To connect, educate and inspire diverse communities to actively conserve and celebrate our natural heritage.
  • To nurture and form partnerships to achieve better biodiversity and social outcomes.
