Temasek Shophouse Conversations: Youth in Action
The Temasek Shophouse Conversations: Youth in Action is a hybrid event in collaboration between Temasek Foundation and Heartware Network. It aims to provide a platform for young people to take action to address societal challenges facing Singapore and the region to achieve common good.
Building on the specific youth calls to action launched at the Conversations and the Temasek Shophouse Conversations: Youth Call to Action programme held last year, where youths underwent training and mentorship to sharpen their ideas and project planning skills to tackle various societal challenges, youth leaders will next be pitching their project ideas to seek funds to implement their projects.
A total of nine projects, including two completed projects, will be presented at the event. They seek to address the impact of COVID-19 or the need to prepare for the next pandemic, climate change, and maternal and child wellness, ranging from promoting youth mental health during the pandemic, supporting climate education for youth, and building awareness on the importance of oral health for young children
