A group of students from NTU’s University Scholars Program visited the ASE last week to interview Professor Benjamin P. Horton on the effects of rising sea levels caused by climate change in Southeast Asia.

Here is what they had to say afterwards: “Your sharing was very insightful and will definitely go a long way to help shape our report. More importantly, all of us feel more inspired to play a more active role in pushing for sustainability (including requesting for bike lanes)”.
