It’s good to talk

Do you want to start the climate conversation at your school, community, or work? Wait no more! Research and put together your own talk, or reach out to your local green groups for speaker recommendations if you’re planning a related event! There’s a lot of support and passion from experts, scientists, environmentalists and many more to help make your vision a success. 🙂

Here are some examples of presentations we’ve given to local groups, as well as examples from other speakers such as Nor Lastrina Hamid (activist extraordinaire and the most networked person in the Singapore local green space) on taking climate action, Melissa Low (cool-headed and cheerful researcher) on climate policy matters, and Michael Broadhead (passionate organizer of the annual EarthFest event drawing hundreds of people) on eating better for our planet!

Many perspectives, all from grassroots, community-driven people keen to play a part. If you’ve given a talk and would like to share it here to help inspire others to get started, drop us a message!

Everything you need to know about climate change! (Layman introduction)

I was invited to give a talk to a local community group which was interested and keen to learn more about climate change, but with a low level of knowledge. This talk lasted an hour, with Q&A at the end.


Dealing with Eco-Anxiety (Sharing my own experiences)

This was a talk with a grassroots group keen on edible gardens and food sustainability. To keep things fun, I included a contest to draw your own cartoon (with prizes)!


Carbon Trading or Carbon Tax? (Presentation with notes)

I was on a panel of judges for a inter-college student debate on carbon trading or tax, in light of the recent announcement that Singapore would be implementing a carbon tax. This debate showed me that there was an encouraging appetite to learn more, especially from the polytechnic and non-elite schools (not that the elite schools appeared to know more)!
