Founded in 1992, NUS SAVE (Students Against Violation of the Earth) is the main environmental student group in NUS.
We work with the students and school offices of NUS to advocate for NUS to be an exemplary model for sustainability and action against climate change.
To date, we have initiated many campaigns such as the Plastic Bag Tax scheme, Project Box, Project Tumbler, Reusable Bag Library, Green Bazaar, Year-Round Textile Recycling Drives, Campus in a Tropical Rainforest, and the annual showcase NUS Goes Lite (NGL).
Through most of our initatives, SAVE advocates for a lighter ecological footprint through little actions in our daily lives, which has the most potential to be noticed by the people around us and spark conversations about the environment.
In light of the current climate crisis, we will be moving towards advocacy for more effective systemic changes, in collaboration with fellow green groups within and beyond the NUS community.
- Make eco-friendly choices accessible, visible and attractive to the general NUS audience
