LIGHTING UP CLASSROOMS - AND IMAGINATIONS!
 

Green issues are the new imperative of the 21st century. UWCSEA issues a rallying call to the community to join forces and help create a more sustainable future.

The College has an exciting programme of initiatives that ensure environmental stewardship is a major part of every child's education and helps create a greener tomorrow.

Solar for UWCSEA is one of the flagship projects, where the whole College community is invited to get involved and help reduce the College’s carbon footprint whilst building the knowledge and passion of the next generation of environmental champions.

Inspired by the successful Solar for Dover programme, the Solar for East project is a student-run initiative to harness the power of the Singapore sun and create clean energy to light up our classrooms.

The Solar for East team are fired up, and excitement is running high. Their goal is an ambitious one: to install 1,130 panels in the next few years.

Click here to help make the Solar for East programme a reality - and a brighter future for all.

Adopt a panel for $600, or part of a panel from just $100. Donors can customise their panels and invited to clamber up onto the rooftops to help install them.

Fundraising for Phase 1 launched in 2018 and the first batch of installations is planned for January 2019.

"As a UWCSEA student, I passionately endorse the school's mission with its significant focus on renewable energy as a way for us to foster a more sustainable planet. Given the success of the Solar for Dover project in reducing the college's carbon footprint, it is imperative for us to expand it to the East Campus to light even more classrooms - and spark more imaginations!"
