The Moderator:
Junn Loh

Junn Loh is a trained journalist and media communications professional with a passion for mother earth. Having spent some years reporting on the environment, Junn naturally fell deeper into the topic and have come to realise that something is terribly wrong in the way we are living life and treating earth. She now takes active steps to make a change, like practicing the 3Rs and avoiding meat. When it comes to sustainability, Junn believes it’s not enough to simply sell the idea. It is through shared stories that people learn to understand how to think about it, and that's why she finds engagement on the topic to be meaningful.

The Organiser:
The Green Collective SG is Singapore's first collective of sustainable brands curated based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Housing more than 42 sustainable brands in its Green Kampung, the collective works with a vision to provide sustainable alternatives to everyday products to its community.
