We’ve seen plenty of initiatives and events helping youths to ease their transitions into the new normal. But have you ever wondered how youths from our neighbouring countries are coping in this situation?

Titled ‘Navigating the New Normal with an Enterprising Spirit’, the online youth dialogue will bring youths from Singapore and China together, giving them a space to talk about how they are coping with the post COVID-19 landscape.

Organised by the National Youth Council and the All-China Youth Federation (ACYF), the online dialogue also features speakers from Singapore and China.

Happening on Jul 8, the online dialogue also hopes to encourage youths to gain a broader understanding of each country’s developments and exchange their thoughts while expanding their social networks.

Notable Singaporean speakers include Carmen Low, co-founder of vegan restaurant Afterglow, and Daryl Neo, founding director and CEO of technology company, Handshakes by DC Frontiers. They will be sharing their perspectives on overcoming economic-related struggles based on their experiences working in China.

In addition, participants will also get a chance to pose their own questions to the panellists during the online dialogue, which will be conducted in English. A translator may be engaged to ease communications between speakers and participants from both countries.

The online youth dialogue is open to the public. Sign up here to secure a seat.
