Our Singapore Conversation: Why and What Next?


The year-long Our Singapore Conversation has come to an end. Amid the diversity of views, five themes have emerged, captured in Reflections - http://bit.ly/16MJ0Rw. These include more trust between government and citizens, and amongst citizens; the assurance that basic needs will be met, search for a life of purpose in a society anchored in values, a stronger community spirit and that opportunities exist for all.

These core aspirations were collated from views surfaced by the 47,000 who attended OSC dialogues. Around 4,000 went to sessions organised by community associations and voluntary welfare organisations, and participants included taxi drivers, the families of prisoners and the disabled. In addition, a survey covering a representative sample of 4000 households was also done.

How did the OSC sessions draw out members from different segments? What were the lessons gleaned from this year long public engagement effort, and what are the implications for policy making?
