Our Team

A Good Space is a co-operative set up by changemakers for changemakers. We are a group of passionate humans who care about diverse social issues and believe in creating positive change, together.

Committee of Management

Akin to the Board of Directors in a charity, the Committee of Management (COM) are elected by our members to care for the strategic and governance aspects of the co-operative.

Ashokan Ramakrishnan​


Ashokan believes that communities play a key part in change. He is the Director for the Smart Metering division of a local Internet-of-Things technology provider and serves as the honorary secretary of SPARK – a Singapore-based charity helping people living with Attention Deficit Hyper Activity thrive.

Daniel Tay

COM Member

Daniel is a food waste activist who adopted a freegan lifestyle in 2017. This allowed him to retire at age 40, which gives him the time and energy to take on meaningful projects where he uses his three gifts of connecting people, organising information and writing. Some of these projects include writing books, giving two TEDx talks, co-founding communities that apply the principles of freeganism, helping to build the A Good Space community, and even raising the issue of food waste in Parliament.
