Youth Environment Leaders Immersion Programme
The Youth Environment Leaders Immersion Programme is part of NEA’s Youth for Environmental Sustainability (YES) movement, which supports youth interest in the environment and sustainability fields. The YES movement aims to build strong knowledge about Singapore’s sustainability challenges amongst youth, nurture future environmental leaders, and engage young individuals more effectively, to create sustained and meaningful impact.
Youth participants will have the opportunity to join guided tours which are specially curated for the Environment Expo, aimed at enhancing their understanding of the Environmental Services industry. These tours offer opportunities to learn more about innovative solutions, as well as interact and network with industry professionals. This experience will not only help broaden their knowledge but also nurture them as potential future innovators and leaders in the sustainability landscape.
Cross-pollination and Conversation
The programme will also offer a unique platform to showcase youth-led projects, innovations and prototypes in a mini exhibition, where participants can exchange ideas with their peers. In addition, youth participants will be invited to a conversation with Singapore’s Minister for Sustainability and the Environment, Ms Grace Fu, on topics such as green citizenry, the Singapore Green Plan 2030, and sustainable living.
