Improve social graciousness in public spaces. toilets, hawker centres and shopping malls.
Believe that more could be done to improve working conditions of cleaners and make patrons more aware of the cleanliness of their surroundings.
Public toilets, hawker centres and shopping malls.
At hawker centres, they urged the public to return trays after meals and distributed flyers as a reminder to flush toilets after use. A social experiment was also carried out to see if people would help the wheelchair-bound.
Flyers were distributed to remind the public to be socially gracious. Members of the public found it rewarding and responded positively, saying it made them more aware of their roles in keeping hawker centres clean and safe for eating. Cleaners were also thankful for an improvement in working environment.

Create opportunities for residents to appreciate and be more gracious to one another.
Many do not realise the importance of neighbourliness
Void decks and open areas of neighbourhoods.
Created heart-shaped origami to encourage residents to write thank-you notes to their neighbours. A graciousness-themed neighbourhood art competition was also organised.
Participation in the competitions and activities were apt reminders of the importance of neighbourliness. Although the team faced challenges, it was rewarding as approaching the public boosted their self-confidence.
