Design for Wellness
“Design for Wellness” is a community-based project where Singaporeans across the country were invited to join and co-create designs to transform spaces in the library into physical wellness checkpoints. Since its launch, we received over 90 unique submissions which have now been transformed into 350 decals displayed around the Woodlands Regional Library.
The aim of “Design for Wellness” is to encourage people in the community to take the first step towards being more intentional in caring about their well-being. These wellness checkpoints serve as visual and artistic reminders of the importance of consistent and proactive maintenance of well-being. Using a co-creation approach, the project also provides the public with greater involvement and ownership of a shared community space.
We hope that by transforming community spaces around Singapore into wellness checkpoints, the decals will be able to encourage conversations around wellness as well as encourage individuals to take action and care for their well-being.
The launch event for our first Design for Wellness was held on 17th May 2022 with Minister of State Ms Sun Xueling as the Guest-of-Honour. The event was also attended by various other leaders from healthcare, mental healthcare, and social service organisations in the vicinity of Woodlands and Singapore.

Community Giveaway Event
Following the success of Design for Wellness, we are pushing forward with Design for Wellness - Community Giveaway Event, a social media event which involves the utilisation of the decals to come up with or carry out a wellness activity they resonate with. Participants will then post pictures of their activities on either Facebook or Instagram and 10 randomly-selected participants will win $10 Grab vouchers every month from July to September 2022.
The aim of the Community Giveaway Event is to encourage individuals to actively implement these wellness activities into their lives and build a community which celebrates one’s wellness achievements.
The Community Giveaway Event is still ongoing so do head down to the Woodlands Regional Library to check it out and stand to win $10 Grab vouchers yourself!
