What does a more equal and inclusive society in Singapore look like to you? How do we get there?
Together with experienced youth leaders, join the conversation and brainstorm tangible ways that youths can contribute and work together as a society to achieve a more equal and inclusive Singapore.
While Government policies help in addressing problems in the area of social inequality and mobility, legislation alone is insufficient in plugging all the gaps. Some issues may even require a marked shift in how society defines success and ascribe values to certain jobs. What kind of society do youths want to see in the future? What more needs to be done by various segments of society to get there?
On 17 May 2022, about 30 youths and a panel comprising youth leaders vested in the issue discussed youth concerns and questions about social mobility and inequality in Singapore society.
This conversation was part of a series of engagements that attempt to delve deeper into the issue of social mobility and inequality. Youth sentiments gathered from this engagement series would be aggregated and delivered as recommendations that might inform future policies on this topic.
