Follow the footsteps of Nathaniel Wallich, the Danish surgeon and botanist who assisted Sir Stamford Raffles in designing Singapore’s first botanic garden.
Singapore and Denmark share a collaborative history with green ties that span 200 years today. In 1822, Sir Stamford Raffles enlisted the help of Danish surgeon and botanist, Nathaniel Wallich, to encourage the establishment of Singapore’s first experimental and botanical garden at Fort Canning Hill. The first botanic garden was set up at Fort Canning Hill in 1822, formerly known as Government Hill.
Today, Singapore and Denmark still collaborate on creating green solutions by sharing challenges, best practices and innovative ideas.
This exhibition also highlights present day examples of the combined efforts of Singaporean and Danish companies in creating new and innovative solutions for a greener and more sustainable city.
