Who’s the most environmentally-conscious person you know?

He/she

  • need not be someone I know
  • should be aged below 25
  • must be willing to be photographed
  • should be situated in Singapore
  • can be you!

I’m trying to do an article on environmentally-conscious young people, by tracking what are the little earth-saving things they might do in a single day. It will be published on www.omy.sg.

For example, they might turn off all switches in their room before going out. Or reject plastic bags whenever they can. Or use recycled paper to print everything; from lecture notes to e-tickets.

If you know of someone like that, or think you fit the bill, please tell me!

A million thanks 🙂

City Dharma

is the name of a new Dharma circle for tertiary students in the city area.

Organised by the NUS Buddhist Society Alumni and supported by Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery, the programmes are specially tailored to meet the needs of busy students who are new to Buddhism. All sessions, in English, are held every Tuesday night.

It provides weekly programmes on Buddhism and modern living to students studying in schools like SMU, MDIS, NAFA, LaSalle; also to smaller private schools in the Bugis/ City Hall area.

The first session, on 4 September 2007 Tuesday, is on:

Marketing an understanding of life
Sharing by Soo Lih-yi, Deputy Manager with a local private healthcare establishment

Buddhism is one of the oldest religions in the world and yet in today’s internet age, more and more people are finding relevancy in the teachings of Gautama Buddha that were introduced 2551 years ago. In this session, Lih-yi shares about her understanding and belief in Buddhism, and the challenges of introducing Buddhism to those who are new to the faith.

Time:
7.00pm – 9.00pm
Venue:
Singapore Council for Women’s Organisation (SCWO)
96 Waterloo Street Singapore 187967
