Sharing cum Dialogue Session with RC Chairpersons

26 January 2011

Participated in the 3rd day of the 21st IAVE World Conference in the morning and then attended the Sharing cum Dialogue Session with Residents' Committee (RC) Chairpersons organised by People's Association.

The Straits Times, 26 January 2011
Was quoted in a news report on youths. My comments on the survey findings that showed that Singapore youths are generally happy: "I agree that youths today are happier. We're getting a bit more attention now than before, including *Scape, where young people can hang out, and more dialogues being organised in schools and grassroots organisations for youths to speak up. We now have more platforms to express ourselves - and it's helped to give us a boost in our confidence."

The Sharing session was held at Tampines East Community Club.

Such sharing sessions are helpful in allowing different RCs to share and learn from one another!
