The second instalment of MINI Extraoddinary will take place in Chinatown from 22 to 24 November 2019, 10:00am to 7:00pm and will focus on sustainability in today's world.

On the trail, engaging installations and activities will showcase trends and innovations in the field of sustainability, from wearable pineapple and edible plastic, to mushroom building blocks and sewage ink, opening the eyes of visitors to new ways of living, from the clothes we wear, to the food we eat and how we build our homes. It is hoped that the new innovations and materials showcased will inspire the businesses of the area towards sustainability.

MINI Extraoddinary also broadens the conversation to include cultural sustainability. "One of the unfortunate consequences of modernisation is the erosion of our cultural heritage. As we've chosen the Chinatown historic district for the trail, we sought to incorporate a piece of Chinese culture in as many installations as we can," said Mr. Kidd Yam, Head of MINI Asia.

The meeting point for the trail is at People's Park Complex, 1 Park Rd, Singapore (059108). Admission is free. More information on the event can be found here.
