Hi I’m blogging from a business hotel in Lillestrom, Norway.
Next door is the conference centre where the largest building and construction fair in Norway will begin tomorrow and last for the next 6 days.
The Bygg Reis Deg fair has a long tradition, having been around since 1954.
The name “bygg reis deg” is a total mystery to me. I tried a Norwegian-English online translator and ended up with “barley depart you”. I asked my Norwegian partner and apparently the word “bygg” meant “construction” in this context.
I feel really positive about this trade show, and hope to be able to share with you the progress over this week.
Also, please note that our Singapore office is closed from 17 to 24 Sep, but we can still be contacted via email.
We’ve been hearing a lot in the mass media about global warming and how it’s affecting us. Every day we see mounting evidence for climate change caused by human activities.
All those articles are based on what scientists say. So it’s about time that we hear from the perspectives of academics and professors.
I was glad to be invited to a NUS forum on climate change this September. It’s organised by their Student Union and its Students Against the Violation of the Earth (S.A.V.E.) committee.
Great to see young people getting actively involved in raising consciousness on global warming and the things we can do about it.
