Get Green


What is Get Green?

Get Green was a two-year project (2013-15) funded by the NUS Students’ Green Fund, with four strands: Learn, Act, Engage, Create. The project empowers students to change how and what they learn, how they act, gives them opportunities to engage with like-minded students and supports them to create change through their own ideas and campaigns.
