When it comes to going green, it can sometimes be challenging to walk the talk. This is why WWF-Singapore (World Wide Fund for Nature Singapore) has launched #WeGotThis to inspire and empower youth in their sustainability endeavours.
Now in its third year, this global youth sustainability incubator programme presented by Temasek Foundation aims to equip youths in Singapore and ASEAN with the right skills and know-how to successfully utilise social media to advocate for change and create impact.
This year, the Campaign Clinic, which takes place from Sep 1 to 3, will gather youths from the region to develop their digital advocacy campaigns. This will be followed by a 10-week incubator period where youths will receive mentorship by industry professionals to launch their campaign ideas IRL.
“Engaging youths to become future sustainability leaders is crucial, as their actions today will shape the world they inherit tomorrow,” says R. Raghunathan, chief executive officer of WWF Singapore. “By fostering international connections and facilitating the sharing of knowledge, we can strengthen collective efforts towards sustainability for the well-being of both people and the environment.”
Ahead of this year’s event, FEMALE susses out three individuals who were involved in previous editions of #WeGotThis to find out how their experiences have empowered them in their quest for a more sustainable future.
