About the event
This is the second installation in the series of forums jointly organised by the EWB Asia network. Following the 1st forum on Future Cities, the conversation continues on Climate Change and Action. Climate change has severe impacts across our planet and brings unimaginable challenges to people. We seek to explore the actions we may take to ensure sustainable cities in an urban context.
Mr Daniel Loup, a Civil Engineer and Digital Integrator from ARUP, will be sharing about Flood storm mitigation measures in HK during urban planning and design. He has experience in the planning, design and construction supervision of stormwater, foul water, and water supply networks for major projects in Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Philippines. Daniel has led the research, development and implementation of innovative digital workflows including the parametric design of sustainable drainage systems and data-driven climate change resilience assessment of vital drainage and sewerage infrastructure. He believes a regenerative design approach to protecting and enhancing the water cycle is essential to the resilience, health and wellbeing of ecosystems and communities.
Mr Yasser Amin, the Chief Stridy Officer of Stridy, will be sharing about Singapore's Waste Management & Civic Engagement in Environmentalism. Over the past two years, Yasser has been involved in organising weekly beach cleanups and hosting members of public in these sessions. In his roles as Cleanup Facilitator for Seastainable and Co-Lead of the East Coast Beach Plan Initiative, he has been able to actively participate in activities and conversations relating to sustainability & environmentalism. This includes community organising and advocating for cleaner environments, especially in coastal locations.
Currently, Yasser is the Chief Stridy Officer at Stridy, which is a non-profit that focuses on tackling waste management issues worldwide such as littering while enabling individuals and organisations to track & visualise their impact in cleanups.
