On 18-20Jun 2010, I went to Bayer Eco Camp at NUS Prince George Park Residents. Out of the 50+ entries for proposal writing, the top 9 are selected as Bayer Young Environmental Envoys. I was one of them. The camp is one criteria that has to be fulfilled before we can become Envoys. And the top 4 will get to go to Germany for a free one-week study trip in November. The 9 participants come from different walks of life - JC, Poly, ITE, Uni. We have a common goal and that is to sustain Earth. We bonded well over the 3D2N camp. Networking is very important. All of us shared our experiences in environmental activities.
The camp was made up of lectures from professionals from a good mix of industries - MEWR, NUS, ESI, Bayer, NParks. We gain insight in how industries fare in sustainable development and what the professionals think. We went to BCA Zero Energy Building & Pulau Semakau. Throughout the camp, we're also asked to come up with a debate on whether Singapore is ready for the fight against climate change.
And the food & accomodation are way beyond my expectations :) The three days passed too fast, I feel. Now, it's like but a dream.
If you've got the chance, you gotta join BYEE next year! It's an awesome experience you'll never forget.
