Sustainable Schools Competition: Microsoft X ZWSG

 Dear Students,

The programme is open to secondary school-age students (13-15 years old). Students will get a chance to hear from and be guided by mentors from Microsoft, Zero Waste SG, and other organisations. This will definitely give students a unique opportunity to learn about sustainability in a practical context and will be a meaningful out-of-school experience!
