28 Sep (Sat): Symposium discusses the Population White Paper

Join this discussion of the Population White Paper and the updated Land Use Plan organised by Bachelor of Environmental Studies (BES) students from NUS.
Speakers include Ms Faizah Jamal, Nominated Member of Parliament; Dr Shawn Lum, President, Nature Society (Singapore) and Mr Louis Ng, Chief Executive, Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (ACRES) and more.

In response to public debate over the Population White Paper and the updated Land Use Plan, the organisers saw the need to enhance the discussion about the future of Singapore. The Singapore Futures Sustainability Symposium hopes to provide a platform for people to become aware of the issues and get involved in the discussion. Ultimately, like all Singaporeans, the organisers would like to see an economically prosperous, ecologically healthy, culturally diverse and socially just Singapore

Recognising that the quality of our environment is fundamental to economic and social development, the Singapore Futures Sustainability Symposium aims to increase environmental awareness and foster greater debate about the future of Singapore.

The theme for the inaugural Singapore Futures Sustainability Symposium in 2013 is “The Population White Paper and the Environment” and will explore the environmental risks and trade-offs associated with the Population White Paper and its companion land-use plan. The symposium will examine the issues from the perspective of the natural and urban environment.
