Global Concerns

CSS MenuMaker

The College’s Service programme beyond Singapore is called Global Concerns (GC). A unique student run and led programme, GC is the foundation on which UWCSEA’s extensive philanthropy activities are built. Global Concerns’ wide variety of activities and projects reflect a range of global development challenges and associated environmental issues. The GC programme seeks suitable partners and ways to enact solutions. The projects that UWCSEA are involved in reflect concern for people and human economic development in a way which is sensitive to culture, the environment and sustainability.

We operate on a small scale, partnering with grassroots organisations outside Singapore which allows us to develop close relationships, and encourage visits by students, parents and staff to work on and see first-hand how the projects operate.

Special efforts are made in our Primary and Middle Schools to incorporate Global Concerns into the curriculum. We hope that as a result of their experiences, our students leave us with a lasting commitment to Global Concerns and an ability to turn ideas into action.
