ABE staff and students work with Hemisphere Foundation
ABE students and staff have worked with Hemispheres Foundation to develop Singapore’s first on-line personal Carbon Footprint Calculator Website (http://www.mycarbonfootprint.sg) that was officially launched by Mr Simon Tay, Chairman, Singapore Institute of International Affairs on 31 May 09 at the Science Centre.
The launch was part of Hemipshere Foundation's Action for Earth Carbon Footprint Competition 2009. The objective of the competition was to give youths a better understanding of how their lifestyle and routine activities generate greenhouse gases. One of the competition components was for participants to evaluate their carbon footprint size and subsequently, pledging to reduce their carbon footprint.
ABE has been working with Hemispheres Foundation to embark on outreach programmes to the community to raise awareness of Global Warming and to encourage students to participate in the Carbon Footprint Competition.
