100 youth attend Our Singapore Conversation dialogue at Singapore Scout Association

Education Minister Heng Swee Keat on Saturday, engaged some 100 youth in an Our Singapore Conversation (OSC) dialogue held at the Singapore Scout Association.

Members from the Scouts, Girl Guides, Boys' Brigade and other uniformed groups, were split into 12 groups and discussed topics such as the values and ideals Singaporeans should have in 2030.

They also touched on other attributes they feel Singaporeans need in order to succeed.

The dialogue at the Singapore Scout Association headquarters in Bishan, was held in conjunction with the association's inaugural Young Leaders' Forum.

Education and the cost of living were also some of the key issues that cropped up in the session.

Pre-tertiary and tertiary students, aged 17 to 26 years old, later presented the results of their discussions to Mr Heng, who is spearheading the OSC.
