Active Enabler Programme 2021

Active Enabler Programme (AEP)

As part of GetActive! Singapore Campaign, the Active Enabler Programme encourages members of the public, communities and corporates to come forward and play a part in celebrating National Day by encouraging and entrenching an active sporting habit among Singaporean from all walks of life. This year, the Active Enabler Programme will be looking for proposals with the emphasis on mainly physical (non-virtual) sports activities and events to bring sport back safely in 2021.

“GetActive! Singapore 2021 offers something for everyone to play and celebrate National Day together as a stronger Singapore through sport.”


We support community sporting events/projects that fulfil the following objectives:

  • Organised during the GetActive! Singapore period with National Day celebratory elements (e.g. celebrating our heritage through activities, singing of National Anthem, display of National Flag, red and white event dressings).
  • Encourage the adoption of a healthy lifestyle among the participants.
  • Demonstrate innovative ways of engaging and inspiring the community through sport.
  • Incorporate elements of “Care”/”Give-Back/Inclusivity” that contribute towards building a caring society e.g., by providing opportunities for social mixing among different groups, offering volunteering platforms for the community to give back to society, rallying participation and contribution for a good cause.
