CNA Interview

November 26, 2009

Channel News Asia came down to the office today! Ms. May Wong dropped in at around 1pm to do a short piece on us, the youths who will be going to Copenhagen, youths who will be clamoring for our voice to be heard alongside that the political bigwigs in a week plus or so.

She will be following the government delegation for the duration of the conference, and through today’s visit, she wanted to understand the the perspective of the youths who were going there too. Amira and Eileen happened to be in the office, so they were promptly interviewed about their opinions on youth activism in the environment, and how everyone can do their part to ensure the planet stays green and vibrant for future generations. Wilson also appeared on camera to talk about some events the organization has undertaken to spread the environmental cause, and how these events can be sustained and amplified in the future for greater impact.

Moving forward, she said that she would continue to be keen about covering the youth perspective during the conference itself, and our takeaways at the end of the the conference. We’ve tentatively agreed to do interviews via teleconferencing rooms at the venue or using skype, and we hope that through these interviews we can bring the general youth sentiment back to the public here in Singapore! We are also really excited to share our takeaways with everyone back home, so that more people can understand the severity of the problem, and take appropriate measures to address this! Hopefully we will be able to take our message further with the power of the mainstream media!

7 Days left till we leave for Copenhagen! Do check back for daily updates during the conference, and meanwhile, keep your eyes peeled for our faces on CNA! 😀
