Peacejam Singapore / Nobel Peace Laureate at NUS


Dear Students,

CFG will be hosting a Nobel Peace Laureate on campus as part of of a collaboration with PeaceJam for the launch event of PeaceJam Singapore on June 16th. (http://www.peacejam.org/events/june-16/).

Students who sign up get to meet Nobel Peace Laureate Rigoberta Menchu and attend student mentoring workshops which will help them develop leadership skills and hopefully inspire them to contribute to global peace initiatives.

The conference is free to attend and we are anticipating a large turnout with registered students from schools across Singapore as this event targets students from 13 –22 years of age.

Additionally, student leaders in FASS also have an amazing opportunity to be involved as mentors to younger students from JCs, polytechnics, and secondary schools. A call for student mentors is also attached to this email, in which interested parties will find more details about the role.

Please refer to attached documents for more information.

SG100 ‘Think Future’ Policy Forum

We would like to invite you to participate in the SG100 COMPASS ‘Think Future’ Policy Forum series. As a participant, you will get to listen to a series of policy proposal presentations by youth leaders who have undergone 8 months of policy workshops and mentor guidance. A robust discussion will then ensue with the expert panel, you, and the student presenters. This aims to broaden your understanding of the policy issues Singapore face today and how they can be solved from a youth perspective. At the end of the forum, a dialogue with a minister will ensue.

There are 4 forum sessions which you may participate in.
