“They say you can’t always build the future for our youth. But you can certainly build our youth for the future.”

Whether you’re 15, 25, or 35 - you’re one of us. We can’t be sure what the future holds. But one thing’s certain, the future is whatever we choose to do here. No matter how big or small, we have a say in all that matters.

Whether it’s leading your own conversations, catalysing your own actions, or pursuing your aspirations, we want to take that first step.

Through the SG Youth Action Plan, we have the power to shape Singapore’s future through our collective action. Together, we can create change and Spark the Next!

About Youth Conversations.doc

“Sometimes the greatest adventure is simply a conversation”

These dialogues allow youths like us to come forward and share our views on issues close to our hearts. We’ve heard from a myriad of youths from different walks of life, bringing in diverse views and perspectives. And we were heard by experts and policymakers who wanted to know what we thought.

The goal? To convert what we spoke about into actionable steps.

> “Before we change the world, we must first change ourselves. We may not always get it right, but with hard work, compassion and determination, we'll foster an inclusive, sustainable and progressive Singapore. We'll create a home where Singaporeans care for one another, and have a fair shot at their dreams. 2025, we're coming for you!”

About.txt

The SG Youth Action Plan gives us opportunities to take ownership of the causes and issues we care about. Through online and face-to-face engagements, we’ve put together a vision for youths, by youths on what we want to see in Singapore by 2025, and how we can make it happen.

“A place for many things, nothing, and everything in between.”

The Somerset Belt is set to become a vibrant youth precinct in Singapore, as part of the wider Orchard Road rejuvenation plan. We get to play a part in the continual shaping of the Somerset Belt by voicing our thoughts and ideas on what we want to see. We want Somerset Belt to be an assembly ground for our communities, a space we can call our own. Check out the interactive map to find out more. Coming your way soon.
