ME&U Townhall with Gavin Chua - Climate Action Powered by Social Networking.

About this event

Inspiring climate action just as you are, powered by social networking

I look forward to share my observations over the past 15 years of how government, industry and community stakeholders have changed their actions toward sustainability and Singapore. This can inform how each of us can do our part, based on our own sphere of influence and by extending it.

How did Green find you?

This was a useful question which came out of my conversations with Steve Chua. Looking back over the past 15 years or so, we have witnessed a sea change in the attitudes and behavior of government, industry and community stakeholders toward sustainability and Singapore. I look forward to share my observations guided by specific encounters, and hope to learn from you as well – how Green found you – which can lead us to chart new paths forward.

Bio

I’m not an environmentalist, but somehow a thread throughout my career was sustainability and stakeholder engagement. First job was a stint with water agency PUB and then a think tank (SIIA) when the transboundary haze pollution problem peaked in 2006. When I joined the government there was a major climate change scenario planning study. Fast forward, over the past few years I’ve been roped in to help form a new sustainability committee for the local tech industry via SGTech, kickstart new projects at Climate Action SG Alliance (CASA) and support my current employer’s (Facebook) approach to inspire climate action and help scale solutions to create a healthier planet for all.

The goal of ME&U is to reach out to the masses with activities and information that attendees can understand and eventually do something about in their daily life practices.
