Mr Wang, is it 17 to 25, or 17 to 30 ah?

Mr Wang Says So said...

It's 17 to 30, despite what the banner says ... Organisers have decided to expand the age range.

I suppose it doesn't matter since I don't have a chance to visit anyway, but are they going to ask for NRIC or something?

I mean, 16 year old can pose as 17 year old right?

Mr Wang Says So said...

I think the main idea of the event is that firstly they educate youths generally about sthe issues.

Secondly, they get various other environment NGOs (eg Nature Society etc) to talk about their own plans and initiatives and where they need help.

Then the youths are invited to sign up and join the groups which are working on the initiatives that the youths are most interested in.

It is quite interesting because the focus is on policy-making and the end result is that these youth groups will get to push ideas out to the Environment Ministry ...
