Audacity’s Climate Cafe has expanded to Ridge View Residential College, NUS. Some event weeks will be held there. Please refer to “Upcoming Events” for more details.
We welcome all passionate individuals who are concerned about climate change and are motivated to build climate solutions to reverse the crisis. The fight against climate change is daunting, and many could end up feeling lonely and helpless. We are here to build a support system and a safe space. You are not alone. Our climate cafe is a dedicated space where entrepreneurs, scientists, technologists and activists can come together to foster collaborations, and co-create game-changing startups/projects.
“We need a green planet but the world is on red alert. We are at the verge of the abyss. We must make sure the next step is in the right direction. Leaders everywhere must take action. First by building a global coalition for net zero emissions by 2050 in every country, every region, every city, every company, and every industry.”António Guterres, UN Secretary-General

Notable Events in Singapore
Founded by Luke Young and Rory Hornby, Alora is an ocean agriculture start-up that works to bring our farms into the ocean.
Alora managed to unlock a gene in rice to increase its salt tolerance. This allows the possibility of growing rice farms in our oceans.
During our climate cafe session, Luke shares Alora’s plans on ensuring the project does not damage sea life or negatively affect people living on the shores.
In just 3 years, Luke and Rory turned an idea into reality. Find out more information on their website https://www.alora.world/
As more people take action against climate change, it’s sometimes hard to keep up to date with all the new developments. In this section, Climate Cafe Audacity have taken note of climate related events and condensed it in short and digestible manner.
Value-Based Green Transition for Singapore Businesses
19 August 2022, Singapore Polytechnic
We had an amazing opportunity to listen to distinguished guests: Mr Phillip Lim from Aquinas Global, Dr Amy Khor from Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE), Mr Assar Qureshi from Regional Energy Counsellor, Royal Danish Embassy, Mr Humphrey Lau from Global Industry Sale, Grundfos and also none other than our very own Atsushi from Mistletoe!
If you’re wondering what Singapore is doing about sustainability other than throwing the word “sustainability” around, here are some highlights:
UOB is urgently pushing for more collaboration amongst businesses and stake holders in the years to come.
JTC is increasing their estates’ accessibility to reduce the need for personal vehicles and developing more efficient materials for their infrastructure.
MSE’s “Trash to Treasure” is turning the ashes from our incinerated trash into materials for infrastructure.
Royal Danish Embassy, spoke about collaborations with Singapore and their circular economy – one company’s waste is fuel for another company.
Grundfos spoke about India’s large lake drying out and efforts to restore it
Atsushi shared about Zipline Rwanda where a small start-up had positively impacted logistics in areas that need it.
“to understand issue, go to a place where the issues is most critical”
