This month’s Green Drinks is a ticketed event, and a joint event with the EU Delegation to Singapore and the embassies of Belgium, Germany, Denmark, France, Norway, Sweden and the UK. Tickets sold out quickly, even before we could publicise it.
The EU Delegation to Singapore and the embassies of Belgium, Germany, Denmark, France, Norway, Sweden and the UK are hosting this film screening, with support of Green Drinks Singapore, to raise awareness on the issue of climate change and the forthcoming international climate change negotiations in Paris starting 30th November, also referred to as the 21st session of the Conference of Parties (COP21) to the UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
We will be holding a short panel discussion with members of Singapore’s civil society to discuss the challenges and expectations associated with climate change. The panellists include: Nor Lastrina Hamid, Member of the COP20 Youth Delegation with 350 Singapore; Melissa Low, Energy Studies Institute (ESI); Sandeep Rai, WWF; and Eugene Tay, Low Carbon Singapore, and the moderator for the evening is Chris Tobias of Green Drinks Singapore. This will be followed by a screening of “Salt of the earth” by Wim Wenders & Juliano Ribeiro Salgado.
For those who are not able to join us this time round, our next session will be on 13 January 2016, with Louis Ng, as he does a Meet the People Session with the green community.
