It will be a place I will bring my next generations to.
GUI models the way I would like to live, connect to my community and to the environment. It is a unique space in Singapore that reminds us of the wisdom of age-old practices that can guide us forward.
In modern/advanced societies the connection between people to people and people with nature has been lost. GUI is the ideal platform to regain that lost connection.
GUI has inspired me because of the lengths its people are willing to go and the sweat they are willing to shed in order to fulfill its vision. Determination, working against the odds…
GUI has made me a better son, husband, citizen to the country and a person living on this earth.
GUI made me more appreciative of the little things in my life and to try and find joy in my everyday life and more importantly, to recognize the importance of reconnecting with our land, restoring the kampung spirit that is almost non existent in urban Singapore.
GUI brings people together from all walks of life for a common purpose that has many benefits for both individuals as well as our natural environment.
You can be an “adult student” in GUI, and this allows our souls to recover and replenish itself after the corporate world, returning balance to our lives.
Singapore being a highly urbanised and globalised society needs a space like GUI for the young to experience and bring about groundedness, resilience, shared responsibility, being pro active and looking beyond ourselves.
A values-based community for the 21st Century that shows the attitudes and skills needed for resilience in a changing world in many everyday ways.
GUI has given me inspiration – pushing up my standards for what I believe is possible in Singapore – and given me a space to apply my ideas into something concrete.
GUI has reminded me the importance of mindfulness and being more conscious and aware of the people, things and places around me.
An authentic and awesome group of people who aims to nurture greater connections with community and our living environment. Aiya, you need to come down to experience for yourself!
I feel more empowered to realize the things people can do, the impacts that we can have, both as a Singaporean and as a person belonging to this world.
I learnt about the importance of the soil, to take care of our health and eat clean because when the diet is correct, medicine is of no need.
A space which promotes connection between humans and the earth.
GUI healed my soul and gave me opportunities to learn and grow mentally and physically.
Helps to foster a sense of community and belonging to Singapore
GUI shows us why it is important to be human – one of the core traits of a caring and resilient society.
It is great that GUI is engaging families to come and enjoy having fun together, rather than to each his/her own electronic devices.
