Bringing Antarctica to Singapore, Eco-Business launched its film and photography exhibition, Changing Course, on June 4. The exhibition features a specially curated collection of about 70 photos and a short film that documents the ClimateForce: Antarctica 2018 expedition in March led by Sir Robert Swan, a British explorer and environmentalist who has walked to both Poles.
Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli was the guest of honour at the opening event, which brought together over 150 thought leaders, NGOs and Singapore businesses.
Eco-Business managing editor Jessica Cheam and Scottish documentarian Fraser Morton shared with the audience their tales from Antarctica, and their motivations behind creating and curating the exhibition. This was followed by a discussion on the role of business in climate action.
The exhibition is part of Eco-Business’ larger Changing Course climate change campaign that focuses on “advocating renewable energy, zero waste, sustainable lifestyles and engaging youth,” said Cheam.
The exhibition is on display at the Green Pavilion in the Singapore Botanic Gardens until 12 July, with satellite exhibitions available at the Sustainable Singapore Gallery at the Marina Barrage and at OCBC bank branches in the coming months.
