Wazzzzuuuupppp! I’ve been here and there and now work at a bamboo bicycle shop. For Singapore Power Shift, I am putting the different bits and pieces together. Borrowing my alma mater’s motto, “Ever With The Best”, a gentle reminder to set our sights high and dream big, I hope participants of this workshop remember to be determined and overcome any challenges they face, in order to be the best stewards of the Earth they can be.

I’m currently working as an Events Consultant, and I’m involved with the marketing aspects of this event. I want to make a positive change in this world, and thus, I have joined this event to start something positive and hopefully, get others to join in the efforts. In the words of the great Theodore Roosevelt, “The best thing you can do is the right thing; the next best thing you can do is the wrong thing; the worst thing you can do is nothing”. Therefore, to the participants of SG Power Shift, I salute you for making the first step in doing something meaningful and I wish you all the best in making the world a better place to live in.

I am Yi Han, founder of People’s Movement to Stop Haze, a young but growing movement that aims to demonstrate that ordinary people can do extraordinary things if we work together, and the horrible annual haze is our first target. For the past 3 decades of my life, I have been searching for my life’s mission, and now I’ve found it. =) Join us at Singapore Power Shift and you may find the idea, the like-minded friend or the community to help you unleash your passion.

A few years back, the dramatic melting of millenary glaciers in the Swiss Alps (I am Swiss) and the movie “An inconvenient truth” brought my attention to global warming. Ever since, I try to spread awareness and fight causes and effects, connecting the dots! Do you know anybody who would deliberately harm their own children? Well, we are all doing it! Time to stop! What is it worth aiming for anything in life, if there’s nowhere left to enjoy any achievements. Time to stop! Global warming doesn’t stop at the national border. Remember that small things done are better than big things planned. If you need to go fast, go on your own. If you need to go far, go together. We need to go FAR, TOGETHER, NOW.

I am an Undergraduate of National University of Singapore (NUS), and also the Special Projects Officer of NUS Students Against Violation of the Earth (SAVE), where I was provided with a wide array of platforms to work with members of various associations in the environmental field. This is one of those events, and I am in charge of inviting participants. It is really encouraging to see others who are also standing up to making a change, and SG Power Shift is one of the many platforms which allows you to gain not only knowledge, but form long-lasting friendships and projects experience. Hope to see you there!
