SINGAPORE PRESS CLUB INSIGHTS+ EVENT
INSTITUTE OF POLICY STUDIES (IPS) FORUM WITH CHANGEMAKERS
(TUESDAY, 3 AUGUST 2021, VIRTUAL)
REIMAGINING SINGAPORE 2030: FORUM WITH CHANGEMAKERS
As part of the Institute of Policy Studies’ project, Reimagining Singapore 2030, where there will be discussions on how we can achieve happiness, prosperity and progress for our nation in 2030 and beyond, IPS is presenting a series of three online forums with Singaporean changemakers.
At each forum, IPS will ask special guests to tell us about the change that has taken place in their domains of work over recent years, the change they hope to see over the next decade, and their reflections on the processes by which to effect positive social change in our country.
In discussing scenarios of the future, this set of forums will perform an important function. It will gather views on the sorts of resources, strategies, leadership qualities and mindset of both changemakers and citizens that are needed to ensure that Singapore is a resilient, liveable and loveable city of opportunities and excellence in the emerging post-COVID world.
The series will result in a report on the process of changemaking and inform the final recommendation phase of Reimagining Singapore 2030.
You can participate in the first forum of this series titled “Well-Being and Belonging” on Facebook Live.
