The ICCS team conducted the workshop two Saturdays ago and it was great to see some familiar faces as well as some new ones amongst the crowd. We went over the issue behind the data collection as well as the challenges to the marine environment and some lovely examples of marine life that we still have in Singapore.
Armed with powerpoints and the results of the discussion and consultation with Zone Captains, the organisers are better prepared to communicate the objectives with volunteers in their organisations, companies and schools.
The Toddycats had an immediate debrief and there were many suggestions for improvement (including a venue that would better allow the break out into small group discussions). It’s all been minuted and scheduled to reappear n our mailing list in 9 months time. I was very pleased with this effort and enjoyed watching the very experienced Zone and SIte Captains discuss operational methods with the organisers; we have to make that consultation session a longer one next year!
Congrats to the team led by Marcus and Dongrong!
We kept the lectures short to break out into activities and discussions
