The Straits Times climate change stories featured in year-long exhibition

气候变化影响每个人的生活,新加坡报业控股基金会举办以可持续性为主题的展览系列,希望提升国人对坏境保护的意识。

展览系列分成六个项目,以不同的可持续发展主题切入。首先推出的项目名为“What A Waste!”(意思是“真浪费”),于本月7日至28日在滨海堤坝的新加坡资源永续展览馆(Sustainable Singapore Gallery)举行,对外开放,入场免费。

新加坡报业控股基金会(SPH Foundation)日前发出文告宣布此消息。

这个展览系列将为该基金会与社会企业Terra SG合作的教育外展计划掀开序幕。

展览内容通过呈现《海峡时报》气候变化小组所报道的新闻与特稿,向公众宣导有关环境保护的知识。

目前展出的项目,将会解释全球废物对地球的影响,以及适当的废物管理及回收的重要性。

无法亲临现场参观展览的公众,可上网https://www.terra.sg/news-sph观看虚拟展。

系列的其他项目将涵盖食品及水源安全、非法野生动物贸易与海洋生物多样性、气候变化对人体健康的影响、全球暖化与自然灾害,以及社群所发起的项目与儿童和青年倡导者所扮演的角色。

报业控股基金会和Terra SG外展计划中的另一项目是学前可持续性计划。

通过讲故事、有趣的活动和“升级再造”(upcycling)手工班,吸引年幼儿童提高对可持续性的认识,让他们成为年轻的“绿色”冠军,传播环境保护意识。

该计划将于今年下半年在全岛的20家幼儿园开展,旨在提高年轻一代对可持续发展的意识。


A year-long exhibition on climate change and its wide-ranging impact on life in general was launched on Monday (Sept 7) by the Singapore Press Holdings Foundation (SPH Foundation).

Admission is free to the exhibition in the Sustainable Singapore Gallery at Marina Barrage. It will showcase news stories and features by The Straits Times Climate Change team.

The six-part series, called National Engagement With Sustainability (N.E.W.S.), kicks off with stories, photos and artworks that explain the impact of global waste and the importance of proper waste management and recycling.

Each of the six-part series will run for two to three weeks.

The first, entitled “What a Waste!”, will run till Sept 28. Visitors will be able to find out more about e-waste recycling, for instance.

The other five parts will cover issues such as food and water security, biodiversity and illegal wildlife trade, how climate change affects health, global warming and natural disasters, and ground-up initiatives by climate advocates.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, those unable to visit the exhibition in person can view it online at https://www.terra.sg/news-sph.

The series was created by the SPH Foundation in collaboration with the Sustainable Singapore Gallery and environmental social enterprise Terra SG.

The foundation is also working with Terra SG to reach out to 20 pre-schools to educate children about sustainability through activities such as storytelling and upcycling craft workshops. This initiative will start later this year.

“The students pay it forward with the knowledge they have gained through becoming Young Green Champions to spread the word,” a statement from the SPH Foundation said on Monday.
