Educating on Sustainability through Exposure!

Educating on Sustainability through Exposure!

With COVID-19 still causing inconvenience for many, we continue our mission in the name of sustainability! This activity was derived from having our own internal sessions in hopes to preserving our environment. Thereafter, we decided “hey lets invite everyone else in on the fun! To be away from work and stressful environment, we practice the idea of mindfulness to enjoy the serenity of the environment and provide a platform for all ages.

Although people tend to preach about conserving the environment the impact only comes when you actually come see it for yourselves! Every session that we attempt would only contribute to perhaps 0.0001% of protecting the Earth BUT if we all contribute and work together eventually that small percentage would continue to grow especially into good habits to our next generation.

Hence this is where we create the opportunity to spread the knowledge to all who are willing to learn and to enjoy! So wait no further, come join the family and our mission to sustainability!

6 March 2020 Recce trip to St John Island – Exploration and Adventure awaits!

It was a fulfilling trip to St John Island, along with our partners from various government statutory boards and schools. Hiking around the island gave us a chance to learn and understand the different types of endangered plants and life in St John Island. The more important underlying message was about raising the awareness of taking care of the environment. Sustainability is everyone’s duty towards us and Mother Earth and hence, the CSR team aims to develop and run sustainability-based programme! The possibilities of outdoor adventure learning on the island is limitless, from going there by sea (kayaks, dragon boat etc) to nature walks and even a sustainability-themed environment excursion for both kids and adults!

22 Feb 2020 A Walk To Appreciate Mother Nature!

22 Feb 2020 A walk to appreciate Mother Nature!

What may seem ordinary from a distance may be more than meets the eye! That was how we felt when we took a stroll during low tide near the shores of Raffles Marina. We had to be cautious with each step as you may not know; there might be living creatures right under your feet. Even a closer look at the trees would amaze you as it is filled with different life forms coexisting together. Environmental education is enlightening as it teaches you that no matter how small or trivial, beautiful looking or not, all organism contribute to the ecosystem. It is our aim to also reach out with regards to the importance of the environment and that all of us play a part to keeping our Earth clean! The best part is to enlighten our next generation to be able to appreciate the outdoors! Hence if you are interested feel free to contact us at CSR@focusadventure.com

Build Towards Success!

Build Towards Success!

The FOCUS Adventure Sustainability team strives to continue giving and creating smiles for all those around us! It was indeed a challenge having to ensure these bikes are properly maintained, fixed and sent to our beneficiary! All the hard labour was definitely worth it at the end of the day as we managed to deliver a total of 30 bicycles at once! These were also properly checked and sanitised before transferring to our beneficiary’s location with only one lorry! We thank everyone, our participants, our colleagues and our beneficiaries for making this possible! We look forward to continue impacting people and create meaning in lives!

TEAM CHALLENGE HOURGLASS

TEAM CHALLENGE HOURGLASS (TCH)

is one of FOCUS Adventure most significant innovation in our 20 years of history. It is a 24 meters high hourglass shape tower that comprises of a series of 20 different challenges at 4 different levels.

TCH is designed as a team based experience where groups of 5 to 6 participants are connected to each other to scale the tower, conquering challenges with the support of every team member.

The TCH experience is ideal for learning experiences that are centred on leadership, teamwork, change management and character development.

The unknown (and hence risk & fear factor) is synonymous with Change. In order to experience the “Possible”, one has to reach out to touch the “Impossible” and this will require stepping out of one’s own comfort zone to take risks, confronting FEAR and turning it into FAITH – in the system, in the team and in oneself. The climb is a metaphoric experience for the participants, as individuals and as a team, embarking on a journey of Discovery, Transformation and Achievement.
