Young NTUC

Dec 2014
This award aims to recognise outstanding individuals who are strong advocates for meaningful causes and are able to inspire others to “Do More” for the community. Starting out as an active volunteer to leading a team of like-minded volunteers, Lastrina’s passion to do more for the environment gets stronger by the day. Since 2012, she has been actively taking the lead to coordinate efforts for Team Young NTUC 350 Singapore to reach out to youths and Singaporeans. Lastrina joinedNTUC as a union member the moment she started her first job after graduation. A core motivation was her belief that she could do more through Young NTUC. In 2014 alone, she has led 1 youth dialogue on climate change and 3 environmental documentary screenings as part of the eco outreach for RUN 350. In order to gather more youths with ideas to change the world for the better, Lastrina and her team successfully organised a 2 days workshop called Singapore Power Shift, attended by both local and regional participants. Through the above ground-up initiatives, Lastrina has reached out to 214 youths and engaged 15 core team of volunteers who advocate for environment sustainability. Lastrina has been involved in regional environmental work, establishing networks with fellow activists for support and ideas. To take it to the next level, she applied for and got selected as one of the candidates to be part of the Singapore youth delegation to attend the highest level of international environmental negotiations, the meeting of the United Nations Conference of Parties (COP 20) which is held at Lima, Peru in 2014.

Lastrina is a strong Young NTUC Activist who firmly believes that youths are a key stakeholder in the creation of a sustainable environment to benefit our future generations. She walks the talk and hopefully through her advocacy efforts, she can inspire more youth to come forward to contribute to more impactful changes.
