200 youths take part in Singapore Conversation

About 200 youths from various groups, including schools and youth organisations, took part in a forum on Wednesday night, discussing the kind of Singapore they wanted to have in 2030.

The forum, held at *Scape, was the last in a series of 10 Our Singapore Conversation sessions organised by the People's Association Youth Movement (PAYM).

They had group discussions on various topics, including education and employment issues, and group representatives shared what they discussed.

Dr Janil Puthucheary, chairman of the panel of advisers to the PAYM Central Youth Council and grassroots adviser to Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC, was the guest of honour and addressed a few of the issues raised at the forum.

The PAYM started organising these sessions in October last year and have engaged about 1,000 youths, including students and young working adults.
