What is VIBES+?

 

VIBES+ by BB4SCP is a spin-off of our Building Bridges for Sustainable Consumption and Production (BB4SCP) youth conference.

It is a month-long learning journey where youth and the general public could take part in various thoroughly narrated webinar sessions, interactively designed workshops, virtual site visits, and community engagement to enhance their knowledge and be agents of change.

Chitra Devi | Footprint Manager (Marine), WWF-Malaysia

The Food Systems: A Malaysian Story

I have almost 20 years’ experience in environmental conservation, covering community and business mobilization, land use planning, fisheries management, government engagement alongside policy development. I spent the bulk of these years working with both fishing communities and various marine and coastal governing agencies to establish good fisheries management in Malaysia. I currently facilitate the implementation of sustainable fisheries and responsible aquaculture activities spanning both site and national levels, alongside coordinating business and consumer engagements across shark fin, seafood and food waste issues. I am also leading the development of a narrative on sustainable food systems for Malaysia. 

I am a disruptor-innovator, perpetually on the prowl for new ways to address old challenges. I have interest in behavioural science that can be applied to changing behaviour of producers, businesses and consumers towards sustainability. In my work, I spend a lot of time managing relationships across public and private sectors, and have had to use many tools like influencing, conflict management, and negotiation to achieve our conservation goals.
