Ten of our media friends from the region experienced Singapore’s social enterprise scene to gain deeper insights into this growing sector. We hosted the journalists from Malaysia, China, India and Indonesia from 31 October to 3 November 2017. They also caught changemakers in action at the Young Social Entrepreneurs 2017 Pitching for Change event, which nurtures global entrepreneurs on an eight-month journey to develop their business ideas with strong social impact.
“Before embarking on this journey, I didn’t think Singapore was a country with natural beauty. With this visit, my perceptions of the country have changed, as a result of the people, the life, the streets and even the minute details the authorities pay attention to when it comes to designing spaces.“ – Tanushree Bhatia, Special Correspondent, DNA, India.
Least to say our media friends went home inspired by the heart and soul of Singapore.
