The "Youth for Ecology Dialogues" in April and May 2013

Category : events

Youth For Ecology are conducting a series of focus group dialogues with youth ages 13 to 25 residing in Singapore. They conducted their first session last Saturday at the Faculty of Science, National University of Singapore.

The session began with a briefing about issues (Information Session) and was followed by facilitated discussions in small groups thereafter (Forum Session). The participants were certainly engaged by the information session and offered thoughts from their perspective during the forum which were compiled.

Dr Adrian Loo, an observer at that session, described the session as dynamic, fruitful and "inspiring".

Youth For Ecology say,

"Through these dialogue sessions, we would like to provoke in our participants more thinking about the natural environment and in the future of Singapore as well as to gather opinions on what everyone perceives/ considers to be important in the long run."

Their objectives:

  1. Youth engagement: To empower youth to progress from knowing about our environment and society, towards thinking, developing perspectives, and expressing views.
  2. Environmental consciousness: To be a credible platform for debate on local environmental issues, characterised by compassion, respect, and clear thought.
  3. National relevance: To encourage a sense of ownership over our future as individuals, Singaporeans and world citizens.

Sessions are being held on Saturday mornings in April and May and weeknight sessions at Jurong Regional Library in May. If you are between the ages of 13 to 25, residing in Singapore and care about what happens, join them by registering at ecoyouthsg.wordpress.com.
