Singaporean youths are concerned about social issues. Many have turned to online activism, to voice their concerns and frustrations. While an increase in social awareness is needed and welcome; it is equally important to turn our concerns & ideas into initiatives & deeds.
The Youth Action Symposium (YAS) aims to provide a broad and balanced perspective on social issues; while nurturing thought and inspiring youths to co-curate a better Singapore.
Can Social Media Make A Difference?
While social media is great for raising awareness and encouraging mass participation, the question remains about how much of that translates into real-world action. If not, what are the factors that prevent/discourage us from being more involved – beyond likes and the sharing of petitions?
We will be drawing on the various perspectives and opinions of our guest panelists – to explore this topic deeply while covering a spectrum of views. Throughout the session you will have the opportunity to share what’s important to you, and chat with our panelists about your unanswered questions.
