About this event

Dr Andie Ang, Kathy Xu and Nor Lastrina have each taken their own journeys in conservation and climate change activism. An important part of their environmental journey was in making their voices heard through various platforms, such as our BFF Challenge participants writing their reflections on a publicly-readable blog.

Take this rare opportunity to have a cosy talk with these passionate eco-warriors and how they stepped forward for the environment!
