The Great Make-Over Project
The Great Make-Over Project, a community co-solutioning initiative by NLB and supported by CapitaLand Hope Foundation, brings together everyday people to co-solution, reinvent, and reimagine spaces to promote sustainable living. Over the course of six weeks, 25 individuals, from different walks of life such as homemakers, artists and entrepreneurs, were divided into five teams and explored the question – “What would Choa Chu Kang look like when our community spaces are reimagined for sustainability?”
Check out the posters of the teams’ finalized ideas:

Re:Imagine CCK Town
Participants attended workshops that closely guided them in their design-thinking and placemaking process. Industry practitioners and sustainability enthusiasts conducted fireside chats and sharing sessions, lending the teams greater insights and knowledge to further refine their green solutions.
The teams also conducted ground-up research to value-add to their projects. From locating potential spaces for reimagination to interviewing members of the public, the teams went the extra mile to ensure that these projects would translate to enticing and inclusive green solutions for the people of Choa Chu Kang.
On 13th March 2022, participants presented the reimagined spaces and creative green solutions to a panel of judges consisting of representatives from the Choa Chu Kang Town Council, the National Environment Agency, and the National Library Board.
On 23rd April 2022, the participants presented their ideas in a pop-up booth style at CCKPL. Each team was given a space in the programme zone to engage with visitors on their project ideas. CCK MP Zhulkarnain and MP Don Wee attended the session along other partners from People’s Association (PA), CCK Town Council, NEA and NParks.
On 30th April, the teams presented their ideas to an online audience, collected feedback and engaged in a Q&A session. These community engagement sessions not only allow the teams to share their ideas to the public, but also to rope in other like-minded individuals into their projects and network with potential partners to actualise their projects.
