BSBCC CORNER- Dr. Wong as a keynote speaker at the 13th International School Brunei (ISB) Global Issues Conference
On the 11th March 2017, Dr. Wong Siew Te (CEO and Founder of the BSBCC), was invited as a keynote speaker to deliver his talk at the 13th International School Brunei (ISB) Borneo Global Issues Conference.
In his speech, Dr. Wong stressed the need to seek alternatives, citing examples where, instead of cutting down natural forests, fast growing species like Acasia could be used for consumption.
"We must support sustainable palm oil as much as possible. We must use less resources, recycle as much as possible and value food without wasting it", he added.
Meanwhile another keynote speaker Kenny Peavy (American author, explorer and eco-activist) has delivered his talk on raising awareness on endangered species in Southeast Asia.
Our youths play one of the most important roles in achieving a better life for future generations. It is easier for young people to communicate and voice their fresh ideas, and to use their energy to build a better world. Karan Jerath, a UN Global Young Leader and inventor, has said that "It does not matter how old you are or where you came from, and how much you know, as long as you
allow your ideas to become a reality".
