Moving with the times –A Transportation Road Map by Youths in Singapore
My name is Bernard Chen, Organising Secretary of the Workers’ Party Youth Wing.
On behalf of the Workers’ Party Youth Wing, I would like to invite you to “YouthQuake – The Battle Cry of Singaporean Youths”.
Following the inaugural forum on lowering the voting age to 18, the second in the series of YouthQuake forums will be focusing on a transportation road map for youths in Singapore.
YouthQuake offers an excellent opportunity for Singapore’s youths to exchange ideas and experiences and I am confident that the forum topic will stimulate debate and discussions. We thus encourage you not to miss this occasion where you can keep pace with the pulse of today’s youths in a pleasant and stimulating atmosphere and experience the dynamic nature of youth-centric issues.
The second YouthQuake forum will be touching on a youth road map for transportation in Singapore and the details are as follow:
Date: 7th June 2008 (Saturday)
Time: 1400 hrs to 1600 hrs
Venue: 216G Syed Alwi Road, #02–03.
The speakers for this event will be:
- Jamilah Binte Md Lutfi Lim: Jamilah will be speaking on the need for a National Public Transportation Concession Card for Singapore students up till the end of their tertiary studies.
- Kelvin Quee: His topic will be “Taking a closer look at Singapore’s Public Transportation network.”
