Singapore campaign aims to defeat climate defeatism

The Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources encourages Singaporeans to be the game changers.

Singapore, as all intelligent creatures know, is something of an overachiever among nations—a tiny dot with few resources that turned itself into an economic powerhouse. So why shouldn't Singapore help lead the way when it comes to climate change?

That's the question asked by Grey Singapore in a new campaign for the Singapore Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources. The work seeks to prod people out of doom and gloom and overcome defeatism with an optimistic and empowering message.

The integrated campaign showcases how Singapore is already working on long-term sustainability through future planning and intensive R&D. The work focuses especially on water and food-security issues. 

Grey Singapore CEO Konstantin Popovic said in a release that the campaign is "a reminder to us to dream bigger than a small nation should".

As a small creature who knows something about exceeding people's pre-conceived notions, Ad Nut couldn't agree more.
