Youths today will play an increasingly critical role in shaping how organisations adapt to an uncertain world beset with urgent environmental and social problems, but they need the tools to navigate a business and policy landscape that has changed radically since the start of the year.

With this challenge ahead, EB Impact, the non-profit arm of Eco-Business, in partnership with Facebook and supported by the Climate Action SG Alliance, has launched Sustainability Exchange, a platform to accelerate the understanding of sustainability issues among youths and enable them to apply it in real-world business and policy contexts.

We invite you to be part of this meaningful initiative, by signing up as a mentor or a youth participant.

To mark the official launch of the programme, join us on 20 November 2020 as we convene leading minds and fresh talents to share their insights on sustainable development in Singapore and the way forward for us all.

Hear from distinguished speakers from the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment, Facebook, Eco-Business, Temasek and more.

Panel #1: Insights on climate action and sustainable development

In this panel, we discuss the critical challenges facing Singapore as it seeks to reach carbon neutrality by the second half of the century. How can governments, businesses and civic society work together to achieve this target, and how can our youths today play a role? What are some of the sustainability innovations we need to see, and can these be scaled in the wider region? This will be followed by an interactive Q&A with the audience.
