It was a green Europe Day for the European Union Ambassador to Singapore Iwona Piórko who welcomed the Guest-of-Honour, Minister for Transport and Minister-in-charge of Trade Relations S.Iswaran at the Dairy Farm Nature Park on a Monday morning on 9th May 2022. In partnership with NParks, Minister Iswaran, Ambassador Piórko, Ambassadors of EU Member States and Ukraine’s Ambassador to Singapore planted trees.  They were accompanied by youths as they commemorated 2022 as the European Year of Youth. As EU Ambassador Piórko explained: “Trees are both about a shared commitment to sustainability and they also symbolise resilience and hope for the future.”

The Ambassador went on to say: “9th May is the birthday of our Union. A time for reflection on the future. The importance of working for peace is all the more evident, as we demonstrate our unity & solidarity with Ukraine.”
