Conversations on Sustainable Singapore (Energy and Climate Change)

Together with Nature Society (Singapore) and SMU verts, Green Future Solutions co-organised 3 Conversations on Sustainable Singapore, with the objectives to understand people’s thoughts and stories, and to generate constructive and specific suggestions for the Sustainable Singapore Blueprint review conducted by the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR).

The Conversations on Sustainable Singapore are held over three sessions and focus on the following topics:

  • Energy and Climate Change
  • Waste and the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)
  • Food Security (Food Supply and Food Waste)

The first session of the Conversations on Sustainable Singapore: Energy and Climate Change was held on 26 Apr 2014. The discussions and suggestions during the session are compiled in the following report for submission to MEWR as potential inputs for the Sustainable Singapore Blueprint review, and also sent to the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS) for their reference and consideration for action.
