The BES mission
- BES fosters an interdisciplinary method of identifying, analyzing and solving environmental challenges.
- BES strives to develop environmental leaders: agents of change who are passionate about the environment, scientifically informed on the issues, and creative in generating solutions and opportunities.
- BES promotes the personal development of environmental ethics that, while recognizing tradition, culture and heritage, are fundamentally based on science.
- BES strives to reconstitute human-environment bonds through diverse pedagogy, leading to a greater appreciation and conservation ethos—not only for within Singapore but also regionally.
- BES seeks to create regional advocates for the environment. We want students to look outside Singapore and use their prodigious talents to contribute to environmental conservation and management in the Asian region and beyond. We view this as a necessary type of technology transfer from a developed country to its developing neighbors.
