Climate change is a reality. The long term shifts of weather patterns are no longer in doubt. Global warming, arctic sea ice loss, and glacial retreat are some of the most dramatic effects observed all around the world. Yet, sometimes we forget that our tiny island and our population are vulnerable too. One day, our resilience may be tested by epidemics, flash floods, food price inflation and many other implications.
The SSChallenge 2013 hopes to get you thinking about how the global issue of climate change affects us locally in Singapore. More importantly, we hope you will think about what we can do, individually and collectively, to deal with these implications.
