About this Talk

“Why is biodiversity important, and how can I do my part?” is the message that Gretel carries and that she hopes people will listen to.

As Singapore Youth Voices for Biodiversity’s (SYVB) Chapter Coordinator, Gretel has had many opportunities and experiences in communicating biodiversity to the public.

She has even attended COP15—the United Nations’ Convention on Biological Diversity—in Canada as an official youth delegate in 2022.

In a casual setting, hear from Gretel as she shares her personal journey in biodiversity communication, including an introduction to biodiversity and her takeaways from COP15. 

*This talk is suitable for participants aged 13 years and above.
