Community in Nature Schools Award

The  Community in Nature (CIN) initiative  was launched in September 2011 to connect and engage communities in conserving Singapore’s natural heritage.

As educational institutions are important community stakeholders in biodiversity conservation, we started reaching out to schools in 2014. Since then, our programmes have diversified to meet the needs of various educational levels, from pre-schools to junior colleges.

With our school outreach efforts, many of the participating institutions have become increasingly competent in the area of biodiversity conservation.

 

About the Award

The Community in Nature (CIN) Schools Award is a biennial recognition scheme to acknowledge, appreciate, and celebrate the works of our schools, as well as to motivate educators and students to contribute to local biodiversity conservation efforts. It aims to:

  • Encourage stakeholders from the education sector to take on a more active role to conserve our biodiversity.
  • Provide a networking platform for schools to share and exchange biodiversity-related knowledge and experiences.
