About Hemispheres Foundation

Hemispheres Foundation is a not for profit/social enterprise run by a team of professionals and volunteers who provide educational programs and information to schools, community and individuals to promote awareness and informed personal actions concerning environmental and health issues.

Hemispheres Foundation seeks to connect youth and the community with nature and the natural environment:

  • By linking local concerns to broader environmental issues
  • Provide interactive programs for young people that are educational, hands on and fun
  • Through our well researched nature magazine “The Hemispheres / Hemispheres Kid”
  • Supporting humanitarian and social projects in Vietnam, Cambodia and South Asia.

The Foundation has been actively undertaking outreach environmental programs in schools and the community since 1999.

We are the first to pioneer and design environmental camps for youths locally and have since collaborated with Singapore Polytechnic to launch Singapore’s First Carbon Footprint Calculator in 2009.
