2015 Guide to Singapore Government Funding and Incentives for the Environment Singapore is well-known as a clean and green city with the government striving for environmental sustainability while growing the economy. The government has also identified Environmental and Water Technologies including Clean Energy as strategic areas where Singapore has a competitive edge and which could generate future economic growth.

To accelerate the growth of the environmental industry and to maintain Singapore’s image as a City in a Garden, the government has initiated several funding and incentive schemes related to energy efficiency and clean energy, green buildings and construction, water and environmental technologies, green transport and shipping, waste minimisation, environmental initiatives, and capability development.

Singapore Green Landscape 2015

At Green Future Solutions, we do our best to keep track of the sustainability news, communities and industry in Singapore, which are compiled in our annual Singapore Green Landscape. For this 6th edition of the publication, we decided to make it more accessible by publishing it on our website instead of as a pdf file.

The Singapore Green Landscape 2015 provides a list of 160 key environmental news in Singapore last year, and highlights the 11 key government reports that are related to sustainability.

It also gives an introduction to the 44 non-governmental organisations and non-profits; 49 green groups; 17 business associations and groups; 53 green websites; 26 government agencies; and 47 institutes and centres in Singapore, which are relevant to the environment.

We hope that this publication is useful for everyone who wish to know more about the state of the environment in Singapore, find and connect with the environmental organisations in Singapore, or explore personal and business opportunities.

Feel free to share this publication with others, thanks.

A Practical Guide to Organising Conversations on Sustainable Singapore

July 2, 2014 by  
Filed under Blog, Publications

Conversations on Sustainable Singapore (Food Security) cover

We believe that conversations involving the public can increase awareness, engagement and ownership of sustainability issues in Singapore, and enable the public to discuss constructive and specific solutions to address the issues. More importantly, the conversations will plant the seeds that it is possible to nudge or effect environmental change from the bottom-up.

We hope to see more young people come forward to organise future conversations. So based on our experience in co-organising 4 public conversations – “Our SG Conversation for the Green Community” and 3 “Conversations on Sustainable Singapore”, we developed a practical guide to empower more young people and student groups to take the lead in organising future Conversations on Sustainable Singapore.

This practical guide gives a step-by-step approach on how to organise public conversations and shares some good practices, format and questions, and templates of slides, email and feedback forms. If you are interested to organise a conversation, we hope that this free guide would be useful and you do not have to start from scratch.
