Following a highly successful pilot programme last year, Sustainability Exchange - Singapore's first of its kind youth-mentorship programme on sustainable development is back!

You are invited to join us for the official launch on 19 October, where we will reveal exciting new plans and details for Season 2 of this programme.

The Singapore Green Plan was unveiled in February this year, highlighting Singapore's national sustainable development targets for the next decade. With that in mind, we're thrilled to put together a second edition for youths and professionals to apply their fresh thinking to create new solutions and innovations to solve sustainability issues in the real-world business and policy context.

The programme is an initiative led by EB Impact, the non-profit arm of Eco-Business, and we are excited to announce a new range of partners supporting us. Our strategic partners this year include Facebook and OCBC Bank; supported by the Climate Action SG Alliance, and our academic partners include the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore University of Social Sciences, Singapore Polytechnic and more.

We hope that this edition will help forge meaningful connections for youths and mentors, academia and corporates, with the common vision of building a sustainability community and to catalyse the growth of a green economy.

Hear from distinguished speakers from the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment, Facebook, OCBC, Eco-Business, EcoWorth Tech and more.
*EB Impact has limited spaces available for prospective youths and mentors to join us at the event in person at Crane Singapore.
