Green Drinks: The Population White Paper and Implications on the Environment

Vertical Farm in Singapore

Population White Paper & Implications

February Green Drinks invites you to participate in the anticipated talk on The Population White Paper and The Implications on the Environment, featuring a distinguished panel of speakers:

Ms. Faizah Jamal, Nominated MP (Environment and Heritage) People and Civic Sector

Ms Jamal will be speaking on the Population White Paper Debate in Parliament. She is one of the few NMPs to vote against the White Paper, calling for an environmental impact assessment of the infrastructure plans to be carried out and shared with the public first. She said the White Paper should be one that speaks from the heart, rather than from the head.

Dr Ho Hua Chew, Conservation Committee Vice-Chairman, Nature Society (Singapore)

Dr Ho will speak on the implications of the Population White Paper and Land Use Plan on nature areas and conservation. He is a proponent to a holistic approach to land use that promotes a rich array of values for the benefit of all Singaporeans. He has been doing conservation work for the Nature Society for more than a decade, in the course of which he was involved in the formulation of the conservation plan for Sungei Buloh, the Master Plan for the Conservation of Nature in Singapore, the Society’s EIA pertaining to the government’s golf course at Lower Pierce, etc.

Ms Huang Xinyuan, Representative from a youth group working on a green paper

Ms Huang will be sharing the environmental concerns regarding the Population White Paper from a youth’s perspective. She is working on a green paper to address the implications of the White Paper on the environment. She graduated recently from the Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) under the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, and is undertaking a gap year before applying to university.
