Environmental education is an important conservation method employed by WWF to advance its objectives. Success is measured by the ability of local organisations to design, adapt, and maintain their own environmental education programmes.
The internationally recognised Green Flag award rewards educational institutions for their environmental programme that empower students to be the change our world needs by engaging them in fun, action oriented learning experiences.
The first Eco-Schools Green Flags for Singapore were awarded at the annual WWF Eco-Schools Conference on 6th November 2015 to Ang Mo Kio Secondary School and Nan Hua High School. Congratulations!
The conference also featured keynote speakers Sid Das, Executive Director of Earth Hour Global, and Jonn Lu, Regional Director for Shark Savers Asia Pacific. Local, regional and global experts from Earth Hour, EarthFest, Ground-up Initiative and Coral Triangle Initiative, to name a few, were the conference theme influencers, and were also present.
They elaborated on the conference theme "YOU can be the CHANGE", urging students and educators to be the change our world needs. Apart from lunch time interactive engagements, there were several student and educator initiated forums, capability building workshops and plenary sessions for both students and educators. #bethechange
