Youth Action Challenge: Jobs & Future of Work (1)

12 October 2019 , 12 PM – 11 PM

How can we shape Singapore's future economy? More than 60 youths came together to share their ideas.

Session 1 of the Youth Action Challenge: Jobs & Future of Work kicked off at NTUC Centre.

To set the context, representatives from the Ministry of Trade & Industry (MTI) shared about global and local challenges faced by Singapore in the next 10 years, and efforts to prepare Singaporeans for these challenges. Participants also heard from two youth leaders, Ms Yeoh Wan Qing from Hatch and Mr Timothy Low from Halogen Foundation, who shared their experiences setting up organisations that focus on youth development.

Some of the problem statements generated by participants include:

  • (i) the digitalisation of the economy and work;
  • (ii) education and reskilling; and
  • (iii) greater support across work, job opportunities and education.
