Jurong Lake Gardens (JLG) Living Lab: Call for Testbedding Proposals Webinar

Date: 2nd September, Thursday
Time: 3pm – 4.30pm SGT (GMT +8) 


Jurong Lake Gardens (JLG) is Singapore’s first national gardens situated in the heartlands, envisioned to be a people’s garden where spaces will be sensitively landscaped and created for families and the community to come together.

As NParks’ Living Lab, JLG is a showcase for sustainable design and smart technology for sustainable operations. It also serves as a platform for innovators to test-bed solutions that contribute towards sustainability outcomes and efficient operations. Solutions with successful outcomes may be scaled up for subsequent implementation across other parks/green spaces.

This Call for Proposals seeks to invite the submission of testbedding proposals across the domains of operations technology, landscape management, energy and waste management, sustainable building materials, and solutions that enhance social and mobility outcomes. This webinar will provide details on the challenge statements and how to participate.
