SINGAPORE - Some 8,000 students from ITE (Institute of Technical Education) College West will get the chance to be trained as student leaders of environment initiatives under a green-campus programme.

The ITE on Tuesday afternoon signed on to the Eco-Schools Programme, run in Singapore by the World Wide Fund for Nature or WWF.

It is the first tertiary institution here to be part of the programme, which began in Europe in 1994 and today involves more than 40,000 schools in more than 50 countries.

Participating schools must review their environmental performance and include green education in the curriculum.
