Sustainability in action – Green projects and learning spaces

UWCSEA East Nest Garden

THE NEST


Community giving has been instrumental in creating green learning spaces across both campuses. For example,
The Nest is a flexible outdoor learning space on East Campus. It’s just one of many sustainability learning spaces,
including The Hive and the Zero Waste Centre on East, and the Green Heart and Incredible Edibles Garden on Dover.
The Nest was built with the goals of fostering a greater understanding of sustainability through hands-on learning,
and a deeper connection with soil and plants, which are known to enhance students’ wellbeing. As much as this is
a space to encourage ecoliteracy among our own K–12 students, it’s also for our broader community, as we learn
about the importance and practice of sustainability together.


“The Nest is an amazing space,” says Valentina Zuin, Head of Environmental Sustainability and Environmental
Stewardship Coordinator on East Campus.

It’s used formally by Middle Schoolers doing their Personal and Social Education (PSE) once a week, and we have located our rainforest restoration nursery there. High School students are using the space to grow trees that will be planted in collaboration with Singapore NParks, to propagate plants to be used to make sustainable drinks to be served by Activities during school sport competitions, and to make sustainable products such as soap and candles.


“I think what’s really cool about that space is actually that it’s used also more informally, more organically. Students
like to go there for their mentor time and their free time between classes. Even teachers hold meetings there.
People are drawn to it in a very natural, organic way.”
