The Active Enabler Programme (GetActive! Singapore) encourages members of the public as well as community and corporate partners to come forward and play a part in celebrating National Day.
Under this scheme, applicants can submit their ideas to organise innovative activities that will encourage everyone, even those who do not exercise regularly to get active and develop a sporting habit. Sport Singapore will support the approved applications with instructors or funding to run the projects / events.
This year, the overall theme of GetActive! Singapore will focus on the values and spirit of Play and Togetherness through sport, fitness and wellness activities. Projects / Events that create opportunities for social mixing, specifically activities that strengthen inter-generational bonding will be particularly of interest. In support of Singapore Bicentennial, nostalgic infused games / ideas / activities will also be pertinent in fuelling immersive experiences.

YouthCreates – GetActive! Singapore Edition
We also introduced YouthCreates – GetActive! Singapore Edition this year, which is exclusive for youths to apply under the AEP. The inaugural YouthCreates – GetActive! Singapore Edition is a competition for youths from educational / tertiary institutions to pitch their innovative sport-focused ideas relating to health, technology, and inter-generation. The youth participants will get the chance to present their big ideas to a panel of judges and the best emerging from the competition will walk away with cash prizes. Top ideas will also receive grant support to execute their ideas, amplifying their positive impact on society through sports.
More details to follow.
Please write to ActiveEnabler@sport.gov.sg for any queries.
YouthCreates provides a platform for the youth to present their ideas that can make a meaningful difference through sport. YouthCreates empowers young people to dream big and innovate.
HOW IT WORKS
WHAT IDEAS ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Staying active has many benefits to one's health and well-being. However, youth participation in sport and physical activity decreases once they leave school.
How can we encourage sustained participation in sport and physical activity amongst youth?
We believe that youths have the greatest imagination, unique thinking and the passion to create a better future.
Share with us your fresh and innovative ideas that can bring youths out to play!
