This month, we have two speakers, Siti Maryam Yaakub of Team Seagrass and Chengzi Chew of DHI Group.
Siti tells us how seagrass is more than just green stuff in the sea. Learn about the vital role seagrasses play in maintaining the health of marine ecosystems, the changing face of seagrass landscapes in Singapore and it’s potential for combating climate change.
Aqua Republica is a new online strategic game that taps into social networks and the phenomenon of serious games. It helps raise awareness and educate stakeholders of the importance and challenges of managing limited natural resources in the face of multiple and often competing demands in the drive towards sustainable development. Come listen to Chengzi speak about this, and for more information on Aqua Rebublica, see http://aquarepublica.com/

Time: 7.30pm – 9.30pm (talk will be followed by Q&A, then mingling)
