Speaking at the Science Center
The session last Saturday went very well. Despite heavy rainfall and a rather chilly morning, a good 50 people or so attended the public forum on Climate Change. Most of them were Biology students from NIE but there were definitely non-teachers and non-teacher trainees among the audience. The Q&A was the highlight of the whole forum. One lady, I recall, commented on Singapore's Garden Festival being held indoors in air-conditioning - a huge irony. It reflects how the mind-sets of people have yet to change.
However, the point about environmental education not just about knowledge but skills and values, was well brought across.
