Events for Students

Various activities are being lined up to engage students from Institutes of Higher Learning (IHL - including Institutes of Technical Education, Polytechnics, BCA Academy and Universities) and secondary schools.

The inaugural Climate Innovation Challenge (CIC) is the first climate change hackathon co-organised by the National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS), JTC Corporation (JTC) and the Building and Construction Authority (BCA). The challenge seeks to crowd-source solutions to promote climate change mitigation efforts for the built environment. 

This year, we are seeking solutions to drive environmental sustainability for the non-residential building sector (industrial, offices, hotels, retail).

There are two categories:

1. Open category: For members of the public, and those who do not fall under the Student Category

2. Student category: For tertiary students only (i.e. Institutes of Technical Education, Polytechnics, BCA Academy, Junior Colleges and Universities)

Events for Building Users/ Occupants

Extending our outreach to business end-users and consumers, Green Living Expo 2016 – a living showroom of the world’s eclectic smart-technology and and eco-innovative merchandises, is targeted at members of the public.

The Expo serves as a platform for eco-conscious consumers and end-users to learn, experience and adopt green products that will help them lead a smart lifestyle while minimising the impact to the environment.

In line with the objectives of BCA’s 3rd Green Building Masterplan to have more in-depth tenants and building occupants engagement, a dedicated end-users track: Greening Inside-Out has been developed as part of IGBC 2016 to offer insights from both the building owner and tenant’s perspectives in achieving a win-win outcome. Smart technologies to showcase how enablers can help to enhance the sustainability standards within the buildings will also be demonstrated.
