Talked to YEE 2007

Category : mac and the internet

NEA's Lionel Tan asked me down again to talk to the Young Environmental Envoys (YEEs) at their workshop. Its apparently the third year I've done this (see the 2005 blurb) and its always nice to see new, enthusiastic faces.

NEA's YEE programme supplements other activities so the youth (althorugh its a stretch some that) hail from universities, junior colleges or schools. I had 30 mins before their buses came so I decided to analyse aspects of what happened over Chek Jawa.

Several Raffles Museum Toddycats, for example, joined the YEE programme after being recruited by Lionel at the campaign to reduce wastage of plastic shopping bags exhibition they were running. Those who were project managers, incorportated the management of existing Toddycats programmes as part of the YEE project.

At the workshop sessions I attend, I usually hear some of the ideas they are presenting about upcoming projects. Its good to see them try to put ideas to action and grapple with the practical issues so early.

I chatted with a few after my presentation and might be helping them out with the projects which they are evaluating right now - (infrequent) guided tours at Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve in the evenings, an environment 101 webpage for dummies and a public awareness carnival. And an SAJC Green Club member also wants to reconnect me with my alma mater.

We did that all in the 20-30 minutes after my presentation. That's the value of meetups. All I have to do is stop them from giving me a hard chunk of plastic at the end.
