About Campaignends 31 Mar 2022, 11:59 PM
The program, launched in 2017, has already engaged 45 local schools, reaching out to over 48,000 students on important topics such as climate change, the story of plastic, the value of mangrove ecosystems, and marine conservation.
The onset of COVID-19 has led to the restructuring of this program. As a result, a series of virtual learning resources were designed and made available to educators, from videos to activity sheets. Our experts are building a community of practice for educators to support environmental education in school curricula through specially designed resources to help engage students.
Donations received will enable us to engage more local school students, enhance the learning experience, expand our learning channels through new virtual tools, and support educators.
All donations qualify for matching through the Tote Board Enhanced Fund-raising match.
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.
