About Campaignends 31 Mar 2021, 11:59 PM
Launched in 2017, the EE has engaged 39 local schools from primary to junior college level, reaching out to over 40,000 students to date on important topics such as climate change, the story of plastic, the value of mangrove ecosystems and marine conservation. The EE has also offered internships to 38 undergraduate students from local Singapore universities who had the opportunity to work alongside Conservation International's field teams and offices across the Asia Pacific region.
This campaign will enable CSCT to engage more local school students, enhance the learning experience, expand our learning channels through development of new e-learning tools as well as offer an increased number of internships and research grants to Singaporean students in the years ahead.
About the Charity
PEOPLE NEED NATURE TO THRIVE - Conservation International Singapore Conservation Trust (CSCT) envisions a vibrant, resilient, and sustainable Singapore for generations to come and aims to empower the community to care for and value nature's benefit to people.
CSCT's work focuses on education, community engagement, capacity building, and partnerships that drive innovative conservation solutions.
Our Environmental Education Program takes the local to global approach, where youth learn about conservation science and sustainability in an urban environment while connecting with Singapore's natural heritage. The knowledge and skills imparted through school talks and outdoor education programs help shape behaviors and empower youths to consider their impact on the environment.
We work closely with local universities to provide undergraduate and graduate students opportunities to take up paid internships or carry out field research and conservation activities with Conservation International offices.
Conservation International Singapore Conservation Trust is an organization approved by the Commissioner of Charities bearing the Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.
