To envisage Singapore's future, the Young PAP and PAP Policy Forum jointly organised a dialogue to gather insights from members on their aspirations for Singapore in the next 25 years.
For the dialogue to be effective, they must be representative of the national demographics. Held on May 31, the dialogue was titled "The 60-minute challenge: Build our Singapore", during which participants came up with their aspirations.
The 33 of them were divided into specific age groups - youth, young working adults, working adults and seniors. Aspirations were segmented into three levels based on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs: Basic level (housing, transport, education, income level, etc), the Intermediate level (community, family development, arts and heritage, etc) as well as the Advanced level (self-actualisation, national identity, etc).
