The Youth for Environmental Sustainability (YES) Programme traces its roots to the Youth for the Environment Day (YED), an annual observation held since 2011.
In 2021, the National Environment Agency (NEA) evolved YED from a single-day event into the year-long YES Programme. This better supports youths’ interest in environmental sustainability, by providing a more sustained platform to engage them and help develop their environmental leadership capabilities. The YES Programme also supports the Singapore Green Plan 2030’s Sustainable Living pillar, by encouraging active green citizenry by youths.
The YES Programme has 3 key goals:
NEA welcomes the support of partners and stakeholders. Together, we can provide opportunities for our youths to be involved in meaningful activities, and contribute to Singapore’s long-term sustainability. Partners who have relevant programmes, challenges and volunteering opportunities can publicise their activities on our YES microsite, providing a convenient one-stop portal for our youths.
