ABSTRACT

In terms of education, Singapore has an extensive set of environmental campaigns in the form of public lectures, forums and exhibitions hosted by both government organizations and Non-governmental organizations (NGO). The case study of Singapore confirms the claims of published work that there is a prevailing lack of understanding about climate change, its causes, impacts and measures to alleviate its effects, among students. Environmental initiatives from various social sectors in Singapore provide alternative routes for learning. Accordingly, the National Environment Agency hoped to empower Singaporean residents to save energy and contribute to a collective effort to mitigate climate change. Its partnership with schools across the island in building up of a network of student environmental advocates is one noteworthy program. Local educational institutions have also stepped up their efforts in climate change education (CCE). Private organizations have made a great contribution to the promotion of CCE in Singapore.
