Learn to turn waste into items like lamp shades or fashion accessories. Or go on water trails to learn about Singapore's reservoirs.

Company employees and students can look forward to more of such workshops and activities organised by the Singapore Environment Council (SEC), which announced yesterday that it has set up a new training and education arm.

"The (activities)... will also provide companies with tools to start sustainability programmes in the organisation," said its chief executive, Mr Jose Raymond.
