Ong Chun Yeow
Chun Yeow is an aspiring urban farmer growing edibles along his apartment corridor and a community garden on the rooftop of a multi-storey carpark. As a former IT professional in the public sector, he was a technology-enabler to improve the accessibility of cultural heritage which inspired him to believe culture placemaking plays an important role in ensuring a liveable city. His advocacy efforts are in environmental, food and plastic waste reduction/upcycling activities and campaigns led by groups like the Green Ambassadors, Green Nudge, Plastic-Lite Singapore and Journey to Zero Waste Life in Singapore. He has been supporting discussions, events and workshops by Foodscape Collective to achieve a circular food system, organic waste to compost and soil rehabilitation initiatives.
