MSE seeking public feedback on climate change via engagements under Forward SG
Keen to have a say on Singapore’s climate change issues that will affect our way of life in the future? You can now do so from now till Oct 31.
Members of the public are able to participate in engagements for Environmental Sustainability under Forward Singapore’s Steward Pillar.
The announcement was made by the Ministry for the Environment and Sustainability (MSE) on Monday (Sep 19) at the Partners for the Environment Forum held on the first day of Climate Action Week 2022.
The MSE wants to “engage with all segments of society to discuss the challenges, constraints as well as opportunities” that Singapore faces in tackling climate change. It also seeks to discuss the trade-offs that Singapore has to balance, the priorities moving forward and how Singaporeans can contribute to realise the vision for the future.
Members of the public are invited to share their views on how Singapore can foster a more sustainable way of life while managing environmental resources sustainably for future generations. They can leave their feedback and views through an online form from now till Oct 31.
Meanwhile, the National Youth Dialogue on Moving Towards a Net Zero Future will be held exploring the challenges and opportunities as Singapore moves towards net zero. It will also explore the role that youths, businesses as well as civil society/academia have in spurring change in norms and attitudes.
Singapore’s annual Climate Action Week, taking place till Sep 25, will feature nearly 140 initiatives organised by 80 partners from the 3P (People, Private and Public) sectors. Members of the public can participate in activities such as learning journeys and guided tours, green challenges, workshops, dialogues and seminars, promotions and deals.
Individuals, educational institutions and organisations can also make pledges to contribute to a climate resilient Singapore between Sep 19 and Jun 23, 2023 on their pledge form.
