Two Forward Singapore Care pillar conversations on social mobility will be held by the Ministry of Social and Family Development in November. 

The sessions will be opened to students from Institutes of Technical Education, polytechnics junior colleges and Integrated Programme. 

At the dialogues, participants will have the opportunity to provide views, ideas and proposals on how we can better support and strengthen assurance for lower-income Singaporeans.

The first session, held on Nov 11 from 4.30pm to 6.30pm, is open to students in polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education (ITE). It will be held at the Convention Centre in Nanyang Polytechnic.

The second session, held on Nov 15 from 4.30pm to 6.30pm, is open to students in polytechnics, Junior Colleges, ITE and Integrated Programmes. 

It will be held at Singapore Polytechnic.

Those interested in sharing their thoughts on social mobility can sign up for the conversations at the Forward Singapore website.  

The Forward Singapore is a year-long exercise led by Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong and the fourth generation leadership team to review and refresh Singapore’s social compact. 

At the end of the exercise in mid-2023, a report that sets out policy recommendations will be published in mid-2023, charting a roadmap for the next decade and beyond.
