Green Drinks at 350 Public Boardroom

Green Drinks was recently invited to participate in an outdoor discussion on climate change at Chevron House,  in an event otherwise known as 350 Public Boardroom.

Organised by Young NTUC and supported by ECO (Singapore), the boardroom session was moderated by The Straits Times journalist and Eco-Business.com Founder Jessica Cheam and featured representatives from NGOs such as ACRES, WWF (Singapore), ECO (Singapore), Conservation International, Ground-Up Initiative, Nature Society (Singapore), as well as green businesses such as Olive Ventures, Bloomerang, and Forward.

Topics raised included boycotting and its efficacy, carbon tax and its viability, who’s role it is to initiate green changes: consumer or businesses?, and the government’s role.

To read Jessica Cheam’s thoughts of the event, see her blog entry on The Straits Times here.

Quite a few people came by to listen
