Introduction

The first “Our SG Conversation for the Green Community” was held in Jan 2013, and was initiated by Faizah Jamal, Nominated Member of Parliament (Environment and Heritage) People and Civic Sector, and Eugene Tay, Director of Green Future Solutions. The diverse views of the green community, which included environmental NGOs and groups; individual environment, animal and wildlife activists; and environmental businesses, associations and research academics, added an important voice to the overall national “Our SG Conversation”.

After the conversation, there was feedback that the conversation format was useful in seeking and discussing views and issues, and that there should be more conversations focusing on specific environmental issues and to open them to the public. Subsequently, another “Our Singapore Conversation on Green Spaces” was organised by Nature Society (Singapore) and Young NTUC in Nov 2013 to focus on green spaces and their importance and conservation.

In our earlier post, Our (Green) Singapore Conversation, we mentioned that we are planning to organise an OSC session for the green community. Here’s an update:

Our SG Conversation for the Green Community is organised by Faizah Jamal, Nominated Member of Parliament (Environment and Heritage) People and Civic Sector, and Eugene Tay, Director, Green Future Solutions, in collaboration with the “Our Singapore” Programme Office, Public Service Division.

The ongoing Our SG Conversation (OSC) provides an opportunity for Singaporeans to come together and discuss our vision and priorities as a country. We believe that the green community would also be able to contribute and make a difference to this national conversation. The diverse views of the green community, which includes environmental NGOs and groups; individual environment, animal and wildlife activists; and environmental businesses, associations and research academics, would add an important voice to the overall conversation.
