TEDxDBS – Trailblazer
29 March, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
[email protected] is in its third iteration and the theme for this year’s event is ‘Trailblazer’ – a pioneering person who treks on unexplored paths, pushing the realms of familiar territory and venturing into the unknown, creating a new trail for others to walk upon, lighting the path for others to follow.
The event will be held on the 29th of March, 2019, and will feature inspirational talks by entrepreneurs, scientists, educators and more!
Woody from CWR will be speaking at this event: droughts, wildfires, typhoons – climate change makes many of us feel hopeless, that it is too big to solve, but as a DBS alumnus, Woody Chan argues that this is not the case. Having experienced the same helplessness, he will share how overcame it while working at CWR, which evolved from a vision to a cutting edge think tank in 7 years. Woody will then walk us through some “reach-for-the-sky” ideas to tackle climate change, from 3D printing steaks and capturing cow farts to slowing down fashion.
However, most of us are still not fully aware of the challenges and with only 12 years left on the clock, we have to fast track climate action. This is not just the government’s job. Individuals too can be empowered to make an impact and Woody firmly believes that Generation Z, with their creativity, can trailblaze too if they are on the same page.
