About Campaignends 31 Mar 2023, 11:59 PM
The EE is offered at no cost to educational institutions or school students. We aim to foster individual transformation and inspire future generations of Singaporeans to develop a deeper understanding of nature and build a vibrant and liveable community where people care for nature and each other.
Launched in 2017, the EE has engaged 79 local schools from primary to junior college level, reaching out to over 70,000 students to date on important topics such as climate change, the story of plastic, the value of mangrove ecosystems, and ocean conservation.
This campaign will enable us to engage more local school students, enhance the learning experience, expand our learning channels through the development of new e-learning tools as well as offer mentorship on conservation topics 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 environmental education, university internships, conservation science, research, and climate finance. We partner with the private and civil sectors to encourage environmental responsibility and sustainability through innovative conservation solutions such as natural climate 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, outdoor education and mentorship programs, and fun virtual learning videos 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 across the Asia-Pacific region.
Conservation International Singapore Conservation Trust is an organization approved by the Commissioner of Charities bearing the Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.
