Singapore

Under the leadership of the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) an Earth Charter dialogue process was initiated in 1999 in Singapore. During that time various environmental groups were invited to provide feedback and share their views on the Earth Charter Benchmark Draft II. The Earth Council conducted a series of meetings in November and December 2000 with SEC, NGO representatives, and Ministry of Environment officials in order to prepare the ground for the establishment of a multi-stakeholder mechanism. The Earth Charter was incorporated as part of that effort.

In January 2000, the Singapore Soka Gakkai (SG) Association, with the support of the Singapore Environment Council, held a workshop on the Earth Charter with 90 representatives from different sectors of society. A forum called “The Youth and the Earth Charter” was attended by 600 Singapore SG Association Youth Division members.

In recent years there have not been many activities specifically on the Earth Charter in Singapore.
