The theme of the function : ‘ADD-ing power to environmental capacity building’ – “ADD” stands for Advise, Develop and Deliver, a formula for enhancing the quality of training programmes to create a market oriented environmental workforce. SEI presented the ADD formula during the function by highlighting three initiatives:
Formation of the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), a committee comprising distinguished individuals from the government, academia and industries.
‘The TAC will add a strategic dimension to SEI’s partnership network. With the TAC to advise partners to jointly develop programmes and dedicated trainers to deliver the contents, it adds power in advancing Singapore’s environmental sustainability efforts to help build greater environmental capacity amongst industries and the developing world’ said Mr Lee in his opening speech.
