It's time again for the annual Singapore-Canada Learning Exchange!*

And join a fantastic panel of Canadian alumni discussants who will kick-off the informal dialogue with Poh Joo - high performance coach-educator-President of Special Olympics, researcher in Arctic geopolitics and climate change, and teacher-cum-sustainability activist:
