200 students attend youth symposium to discuss social cohesion and racial harmony
Some 200 secondary and tertiary students exchanged ideas and opinions on how to foster social resilience at a youth symposium organised by the Inter-Agency Aftercare Group earlier today.
Held at Singapore Expo, the symposium took the form of four workshops that discussed themes surrounding societal cohesion and racial and religious harmony in Singapore.
One of the workshops had students discuss real-life scenarios concerning potential racial or religious conflict. Another focused on the role of the Religious Rehabilitation Group (RRG), which does counselling work for detainees, in fostering social cohesion in Singapore.
In his welcome address, Mr Azmoon Ahmad, chairman of both the Association of Muslim Professionals and the inter-agency group said Singapore continues to face threats to internal security and stability.
