Once you have checked in, the background will start changing color. Just show the flashing screen to one of the organizers, and you can walk straight to the free coffee and breakfast.


Tay Lai Hock is the founder and of Ground-Up Initiative (GUI) and active advocate of learning by doing. He is best known as the Kampung Chief.

GUI is a volunteer-driven non-profit community that seeks to restore the connection between city dwellers and the land for the many universal values and life skills it teaches us. GUI moved to Yishun (at the former Bottle Tree Park) in April 2009 where it has collectively raised and grown its base, the Sustainable Living Kampung, from a mere 100sqm of space to over 1500sqm. Passionate about the educational power of community-based activities, Lai Hock is on a mission to build Singapore's first experientially based community learning campus on a 26,000sqm plot of land.

We're excited to hear from him this month and his take on our global theme 'Education'.
