Student Environmental Activists @
“The biggest threat to our planet is the belief that SOMEONE ELSE will save it.”- this powerful sentiment of Robert Swan’s led to the creation of Student Environmental Activists (SEA) to drive smarter choices embedded in sustainability within our school community, here at NPS Int’l School Singapore. The team was led by 2 aspiring environmentalists, Sahana and Richelle and had a core team of 14 of us, who were so passionate to create change! Some of our work so far include volunteering at the ‘Conscious Festival’, Asia’s largest sustainable festival, executing our first ever ‘Climate Change Conference’ with adjudicators from Mother Earth Toastmasters SG and panellists from WWF. During quarantine, we engaged our community by curating a short video, ‘Honouring our Health Heroes” to express our gratitude for the front-liners, a satirical comedy “Climate Comedy of Errors” using the popular meme medium to question current systems and demand change and even a monochrome film release, ‘Ultimatum’ to celebrate Earth Day.
2020 reminds us that systemic change- although hard- is not impossible. Our activism now pursues more creative angles, making the best of a post-COVID-19 world. In the light of this, we have launched as a portal for self-expression and community learning. Do visit our page and follow us on Instagram @studentenvironmactivists for more updates.
