Are you a changemaker who is passionate about sustainability and wants to make a difference?
Come join us for a 3-day youth forum where your voices will be heard! The Global Compact Network Singapore (GCNS) Youth Forum is the first of its kind here in Singapore, and it is aimed to be a platform for youths to learn, engage and network with experts in the corporate sustainability field. GCNS Youth Forum 2017 is held in conjunction with Singapore Power Shift 2017.
On the first day, there will be site visits to Asia Pacific Brewery and The Hilton Hotel where you’ll see and learn how these corporations do their part to decrease their carbon footprints and use ethical practices.
On the second and third day, there will be plenary and breakout sessions. Led by esteemed panelists and speakers, we will explore important issues such as developing innovations in sustainability, tackling climate change though corporate sustainability as well as the power of employee-led sustainability initiatives. There will also be a trade fair showcasing different ethical projects here in Singapore.
