As a child, November Tan was influenced by Captain Planet. And she wanted to be just like him! As an undergraduate, she saw the Toddycats’ “Do you have a passion for nature and the environment” poster and joined us to contribute to various programmes. Her strong interest in environmental sensitivity, had her try to get a conversation going with Toddycats in 2005:
And she is still at it – this time as founder and coordinator of The Leaf Monkey Workshop since 2007. She and her team just conducted a lovely workshop on marine trash with ICCS Otters which you can read about here. Congratulations to November, Kah Ming, Ria and Bo Kai for providing a unique and lovely workshop experience, everyone!
