Alpha Commons is a project-based learning community designed to empower creativity and nurture empathy in primary schoolchildren. Through the lens of social and environmental issues, the project engages students in authentic hands-on learning experiences to raise their awareness of the community and develop tangible solutions that address real-world challenges. By joining Alpha Commons, children are connected with social innovators in the city and be inspired and encouraged to become active participants in social change. The programmes cover diverse issues such as ageing population, food wastage, energy poverty, and social inclusion.
