Youth Engagement Cannot Be Same Old, Same Old
« on: March 13, 2018, 10:23:45 pm »
“The new Youth Conversations aim to inform the young about important national issues, as well as help them work out their differences by listening, negotiating, and finding solutions together, and with the government” (Youth Conversations Dialogue Series among Outreach Efforts, Toh Yong Chuan)

The launch of a series of dialogues – christened the Youth Conversations – “to inform the young about important national issues” (ST, Mar. 9) is encouraging, but thus far it is not clear whether the government has considered the feedback from similar outreach efforts in the past, both to ensure a broader diversity of participants as well as to articulate a more coherent “so what?” vision: So what happens at the end of the process? And more importantly, since the Minister for Culture, Community, and Youth Grace Fu has said that the government will be more open, is it also open to ideas or projects which may run counter to what is expected, for youths to not necessarily find solutions together with it.

just take a leaf out of the playbook of Ministry of Finance and use those instagrammers with big boobs to engage the youth loh .....

hope they didn't spend $200,000 to commission a study to come to the same conclusion.
