    Save the environment.

    It’s an old rhetoric. Everyone seems to be talking about it, and yet as you look around you, few people seem to be doing their part.

    Here at Raffles One Earth, you will have the opportunities and resources to change that, one step at a time. You will have the chance to explore your various interests in the environment, or simply learn more about today’s pressing environmental issues. You can make new friends who may be from different backgrounds, but you will all be bonded by your common passion for the environment. Mostly importantly, you can serve an aspect of your community that is often overlooked by many of your peers. As long as you’re interested in broadening your knowledge and serving the environment, don’t be afraid to sign up! We look forward to seeing you there!
