Green Riders Episode 9: Singapore Swing!
A long bridge connects Malaysia to Singapore. Every day thousands of moto-mounted labourers stream across to work for the big money in Singapore and return home each night to their families in Malaysia.
Crossing this bridge, Green Riders moved from the resource economy of Malaysia to the wealthy, urban culture of Singapore.
Crossing this bridge, we also crossed into a nation with a sense of urban, nature disconnect, as well as the powerful social innovation and environmental initiatives that middle class cultures can so often breed.
Through our stay, we were invited to connect with many such projects, such as GUI, the Ground Up Initiative and Bamboobee, the makers of our bamboo bikes, and to share our work at a media event, put together by Lastrina from 350 Singapore.
GREEN RIDERS is a video-journey, exploring environmental stories, struggles and successes, across Southeast Asia, by bamboo bike and other sustainable means.
