OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOver 65 young people from 11 schools made their voices heard at a forum on kindness online on 1 July afternoon, held at *SCAPE Ground Theatre.

The Kindness Youth Dialogue 2015 is one of the Singapore Kindness Movement’s (SKM) flagship initiatives, engaging young Singaporeans in a collaborative process of developing ideas and implementing solutions to some of the problems facing our society today.

Themed “On the Other Side of the Screen” and running for four hours, the dialogue session tackled issues of Internet behaviour and cyber wellness.

Panellists include Mr Nicholas Lim from the Media Literacy Council, and Mr Cesar Balota, Associate General Secretary at SKM, who engaged with passionate young people to identify problem areas and build effective solutions to bridge kindness between the online and offline spheres.

SKM also offered a Seed Kindness Fund of up to S$1,000 to participants to help implement their ideas for promoting kindness and cyber wellness in their schools and in the community.

WeTheSocial, the beneficiaries of the Seed Kindness programme last year, and The Brolls, which encourages individuals to pledge their support at brollzone.com by spreading messages of positivity online, were also present to share their initiatives.

台湾限制口罩出口 蔡英文:先自助再助人 有余力愿助中国

台湾政府早在本月23日公告,对特定口罩(包括N95和手术口罩)管制出口,为期一个月,以确保口罩能满足该岛民众需求。 对于出境旅客,若携带数量合理,则无需向当地海关填出口报单。 台湾是在本月21日出现首例新型冠状病毒确诊患者,是一名55岁台湾女性。这名患者曾在武汉工作。 至本月28日,台湾经济部代表称当天起一连三天发出600万医疗口罩,但一人仅限购三片。台湾民间亦出现排队买口罩的现象。 据当地经济部统计,台湾平面口罩厂商每日产能188万片、最多可达244万片,N95 口罩每日产能10万片,最多可生产12万片。 台湾行政院长苏贞昌宣布禁口罩出口一月,认为“自救才能救人”,但台方此举却引来批评,指责台湾不愿卖口罩给中国“没爱心”。 优先台湾防疫工作 至于台湾总统蔡英文则在29日表示,当地政府将确保台湾医疗和防疫资源充足。同时基于人道考量,对中国受到疫情冲击的民众,行有余力之处,愿意提供必要协助。 她也强调将管控防疫物资,政府部门将“统一征购、统一调控和统一售价”,追踪口罩产量和存量,确保供应无虞。 “疫情没有国界,防疫不分蓝绿,要先自助、才能助人。”
