When #LepakInSG first started, we only had the online calendar.
Over the past two years, we expanded the team. There’s a team organising the Shopping for Sustainability tour series, and now there is another team organising the IYOR outreach workshops. Our young volunteers are really taking ownership of their projects. Come for the event and see what they are doing.
My Co-Founder Xiang Tian is the overall coordinator for these projects and he can be contacted at XXX
