Another one of them awesome posters behind toilet cubicle doors. This creative artwork was done by Graphic Design students from neighbouring University of Canberra. So where would you place yourself on this spectrum?
Cool green ads #1
Seen on the back of the door of a toilet cubicle on campus. One thing that Canberra prides itself of, is the fact that it’s a bike-friendly place. Several course mates of mine cycle between 20-30mins to school everyday. Great workout, and if need be, there are several shower facilities on campus. Definitely not having…

Is the (sea)grass really greener on the other side?
Marine biologist Siti M. Yaacub gave a talk about sea grasses at the National Geographic Store at VivoCity, Singapore, on 10th December 2011. I was completely taken aback both by the current vibrancy of seagrass life along some of the coasts of Singapore and also the massive decline in the number and size of areas…
Permaculture Design Course Up North in January.
If the world is small, Singapore and its neighbours are microscopic! In late July this year, I had the opportunity to meet Ustazah Kauthar, initiator of the Go Green Muslims programme in the Integrated Islamic School in Shah Alam, Malaysia. It was wonderful to see her various efforts in nurturing the young with fundamental environmental…
