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 - and for over 30 years, Conservation International (CI) has worked to protect it through cutting-edge science, innovative policy and partnerships. As an environmental nonprofit organisation working to build a healthier and more prosperous planet, CI has supported 1,200 land, marine and coastal protected areas and interventions across 77 countries.
In Singapore, CI Singapore strives to provide solutions that protect the local biodiversity, natural ecosystems and heritage of all Singaporeans through our key areas of work including community engagement, environmental education and partnerships.
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 behaviours and empower youths to consider their impact on the environment.
We work closely with local universities to provide opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students to take up paid internships or carry out field research and conservation activities with Conservation International across the Asia Pacific region
