Malaysian filmmaker Lydia Lubon describes herself as an “impact storyteller”, using storytelling skills across multiple activities, from producing and directing to public speaking about climate change. Recognised for everything from producing Operation Sumatran Rhino (2016) to her social contribution as an environmental educator, Lydia has worked across major global brands such as DW, Al Jazeera, National Geographic and Unicef. She joins us for the inaugural Lunch With… series to talk about social responsibility, panic buying, her first job as an intern for an Animal Planet series shot at the Singapore Zoo, why she thinks real people are more fascinating than fiction, connecting with environmental icon Jane Goodall, gardening and her work for NGO the Free Tree Society.
