Synopsis

Singapore's growth in a space of 50 odd years has been phenomenal. As we look to the future, both organizations and individuals must look to resilient growth in the face of catastrophic climate change which is bound to impact us both physically and economically. As a local community operating within a changing global landscape of social consciousness, the effects of climate change are changing the way in which our very existence and the way in which the global economies, are being challenged. This presentation will address how Singapore must adapt and rise to this challenge.
