ourselves for the impacts of climate change can only be met by concerted andsustained efforts from everyone."Several ideas have already been received from younger Singaporeans who baggedprizes for the National Climate Change Competition.For instance, one of the student groups at the National University of Singapore hasput up a campaign to generate greater awareness of climate change on campuswhile other student groups have also come up with creative ways to raiseawareness and encourage their peers to take action.The climate change consultation exercise will focus on four key areas -households, the transport sector, business industry and evolving clean techopportunities in Singapore.Singapore Institute of International Affairs' chairman, Professor Simon Tay, saidthe consultation exercise is timely as Singaporeans have been waiting since theelections to see if the government will consult the people on various issues.He said: "Especially at this time after the elections, people want to see that thegovernment is listening to the people. Whether it is a big political issue or a bigclimate change issue, it is good to consult people. If active citizens are there, wewant to see what ideas they have."Views can be channelled either through the Secretariat's website or thegovernment's feedback portal REACH.There will also be discussions with industry and the grassroots organisations sothat those who are not so web savvy can attend them to share their views onclimate change.Mr Teo said: "Climate change is a global issue which affects us all. Addressing itrequires a national approach - one where everyone can play a part. We will needinnovative ideas to modify the way we live, work and play in order to reduce ourenergy emissions. Indeed, what matters most are the actions and contributions of every individual and business, because each of us can make a difference to ourfuture and our future generations."
