WWF-Singapore (World Wide Fund for Nature Singapore) announces the third year of #WeGotThis, a global youth sustainability incubator programme presented by Temasek Foundation.
Designed for youths aged 18 to 30, #WeGotThis 3.0 will consist of two components. These are a three-day in-person campaign clinic and a ten-week incubator period focusing on the following themes: circular economy, net zero, biodiversity and sustainable finance.
During the campaign clinic, up to 90 Singapore and ASEAN youths will gather in Singapore to attend talks, participate in group discussions and brainstorming sessions. The clinic aims to nurture the participants’ social media campaigns to be as launch ready as possible. The sessions are designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas between ASEAN youths, offering participants a holistic understanding of sustainability issues facing the region.
The campaign clinic is followed by the ten-week incubator period where youths will be mentored by industry professionals and pilot their campaign ideas in real-life. This is where they will gain tailored guidance on how to troubleshoot their campaign messages, improve their science communication and build a community-led initiative on various sustainability issues of their choice.
#WeGotThis Fest (24-25 June 2023)
The first phase of the programme will be held on 24 and 25 June 2023. Open to participants across the globe, the two-day virtual festival features expert speakers who will share learnings on advocating sustainability issues, digital communications and community-building across the various online sessions.
Campaign Clinic (1-3 September 2023)
The Campaign Clinic will take place from 1 to 3 September 2023 where 90 youths from Singapore and the ASEAN region will gather in Singapore to develop and ready their digital advocacy campaigns for launch.
Following a practicum-based pedagogy, the clinic will consist of talks, group discussions and ideation exercises, daily deliverables and proposals, as well as personalised consultation with industry experts on campaign feasibility.
Incubator Programme (4 September – 10 November 2023)
The Incubator Programme will take place from 4 September to 10 November 2023. Across these ten weeks, youth participants will be paired with industry mentors from the fields of sustainability, digital marketing and community building. This partnership will allow participants to receive specialized advice and guidance from these industry experts, contributing to a more holistic experience.
At the end of the programme, you will graduate with the necessary skills equipped to build a digital following, influence peers and the larger community, and drive ground-up change via your own social media platforms.
