Conducted along National Parks Board's Parks Connector Network (PCN), students and staff explore how human activities affect the design of and land use around the Pasir Ris-Punggol precincts in Singapore. The interpretive approach to the landscapes helps the participants to gain insights into nature-urban tensions in land-scarce Singapore. Students will appreciate how nature shapes our lives and how development in turn reshapes the land.
The Learning Journey through PCN also helps participants appreciate the importance of good design in urban planning - the PCN not only links fragmented parks but also communities together. The opportunity and ability to make sense of the landscapes travelled can help students gain fresh perspectives to construct their own body of knowledge which in turn can translate into a deep sense of connectedness to our land.
