Malala Yousafzai was 11 when she started her blog. It would later lead to a global movement for female education.

The inventor of a much cheaper way to detect pancreatic cancer was just 16 when he made the discovery.

And Jazzy Recycling, a London-based app that gets people to recycle by turning it into a game, was invented by a 14-year-old.

Youth are changing the world — so let’s we work on how we can do it better.

Join Hazeera Bi, Sankar Ananthanarayanan, Gauri Shukla, Cheryl Lee and Jonathan Halim in a collaborative discussion on how youth can take impactful action to bring about positive change for the environment!

Kick back, relax and learn how you can form solid environmental clubs, petition to companies, be an effective volunteer, survive a climate change conference and practise freeganism.

They will also be joined by Malika Avani, an activist who has lived with tribes in the Amazon, and who was at the Standing Rock last year.

The discussion will be facilitated by Nor Lastrina Hamid, YSEALI alumni and Co-Founder of Singapore Youth for Climate Action and #LepakInSG.

This is a free event that’s open to all. Do RSVP on this event page AND register here: https://goo.gl/forms/i4OuJkIg6W1Rs2ox1 so we know how many people to expect!

Come one, come all!
