There were several simultaneous panels during the event and I was involved in discussions on "Our Environment, My business".
Veera shared lots of inspiring ideas about rethinking consumerism, ethical business practices and much more. He shared about The Sustainable Living Lab (SL2) a makerspace for the Soul! They also have courses for ordinary people to learn how to make things with their hands from industrial waste materials. In mass production, often perfectly good materials have to be offcut and thrown away to meet quality standards. SL2 uses these for handmade objects.

iBam is a speaker for your iPhone made from bamboo!
I also took the opportunity to share the 'blue' guidesheet to Singapore's Southern Shores with those who asked questions.
Thanks to Faith Goh and Alvin Low for inviting me to be a part of this. And to Veera for the insights into the business aspects of making change.
