We spent the bulk of Wednesday’s exco meeting discussing the motivations of the SSN and the need for such a conference in Singapore. The idea of the SSN was birthed from Jeffrey and Weiliang’s observation of a culture of collaboration amongst environmental groups in Scandinavia that they felt Singapore was lacking. The SSN is thus a way for us to promote and enable that sort of collaboration in Singapore, with the aim of making such collaboration a longer-term process through the network that will be in place post-conference. There were many questions raised at the meeting about the real need of the SSN in Singapore (e.g. what incentive is there for organizations to send representatives to our conference? what are the concrete benefits of the conference that are different from what existing events like Green Drinks can offer?), and you can read more about the discussions on those in the minutes.
