21 Jun (Fri): Talk: #Youths_in_Biodiversity

Open to the Public - Registration Needed

Biodiversity loss has reached its threshold. Our ecosystems are suffering the consequences and this has affected our society. The current generation of young people must act to safeguard biodiversity and our future. Karl will share about the works of youths during the ASEAN Youth Biodiversity Leaders Programme workshop. The inaugural workshop was held in Thailand for a week where participants learnt about project management and implementation. The talk will also discuss how Singapore can engage its youths in Biodiversity with current resources and networks.
