Happy Earth Week! On Wednesday 20 April we had our film screening of Cotton Road, followed by chai, cookies, and meaningful discussion on the social and environmental implications of the clothing industry. Following the screening we had a short meeting discussing the upcoming June workshop and future plans for the SSN. For details on the structure and rationale of the SSN, please see this week’s minutes.
As you all know, I’dECO has wrapped up its last general meeting for the semester, but work is still being done for events happening this summer and in preparation for the SSN!
Environmental Accelerator Workshop
Environmental Education will be hosting a workshop in early June and are currently looking to enrol 100 JC and Polytechnic students from around Singapore. They are looking for a few volunteers from I’dECO or elsewhere to send out a pre-drafted email to their previous JC or Polytechnic teachers requesting that they encourage their current students to enrol in the workshop. All volunteers would have to do is write a short personal greeting and attach the rest of the pre-written email. Contact Weiliang and/or Jeffrey if you are interested in helping out!
Preparation for the SSN
There is lots left to be done before the conference in August. The first item on the agenda is conducting an initial Needs Analysis, which will be based off of response and feedback of major NGOs and will ultimately determine the scale of the SSN. Currently we are in need of people to meet with these NGOs and write-up their feedback. The work for the Needs Analysis will begin in early May and will be completed by 15 May. If you are interested in helping out for the Needs Analysis, or will be in Singapore and are interested in helping out for the SSN this summer, please contact Weiliang and/or Jeffrey.
