Reimagining Singapore 2030: Forum on Well-Being & Belonging
As part of the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS)’s project, Reimagining Singapore 2030, IPS is pleased to present the first forum titled Well-Being and Belonging. Through the series of 3 online forums, the panels will examine how Singapore can achieve happiness, prosperity, and progress within their domains of work. This first session will focus on the domains of health and well-being, low-income communities, migrant workers and cross-cultural understanding.
As part of the Institute of Policy Studies’ project, Reimagining Singapore 2030, where we discuss how we can achieve happiness, prosperity and progress for our nation in 2030 and beyond, we are presenting this series of three online forums with Singaporean changemakers.
At each forum, we will ask our 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.
This forum focuses on work — in the domains of health and well-being, low-income communities, migrant workers and cross-cultural understanding — that contributes to a caring, inclusive and vitalising society for all who call Singapore home.
