Singaporeans in Conversation
19 AUGUST 2017

Singaporeans in Conversation (SginC) is an annual panel discussion organised by the United Kingdom-Singapore Students’ Council (UKSSC), to reach out to and raise awareness about the organisation, and what they do. The first edition, which was held last year, touched on the topic ‘Beyond SG50: A New Social Contract?’

This year’s edition was held on 19 August at the S&P Global office in Marina Bay Financial Centre, and was attended by close to 50 attendees. It featured three panel members, including Mr Teo Eng Dih, Senior Director (Climate Change) at the Prime Minister’s Office, and Mr Wilson Ang, Executive Director of Global Compact Network Singapore, which is the national society that promotes corporate social responsibility (CSR) in Singapore.

Discussions were centered on the topic of ‘Politics in Climate Change’, where panelists explored how climate change has become a facet of international politics, the implications it has on international relations, and also on the climate change policies that have been put in place both at home and abroad.

“The session helped to clarify some of the implemented policies and engineering rationales behind certain infrastructures in Singapore, and how they would be affected if the country experiences drastic climate change. There were also a few other questions raised from the audience to the panelists, such as how Singapore could do more to reduce the usage of, and increase the recycling of plastic bags.” said Yu Thet Wai, UKSSC’s General Secretary (19th Executive Committee), adding, “We are elated and honoured to have been a part of planning and organising this educational event.”

The UKSSC will next be organising an ‘All Scots Weekend’ trip for their Scotland-based members from 27-28 October, co-organising Singapore Community Day in London on 28 October, and preparing for the new executive committee handover.
