How can we leverage on technology for social change?

A diverse panel of policy-makers, practitioners and social entrepreneurs came together for Singapore Insights on 27 November 2015. The dialogue focused on the potential of smart technology in driving social change.

Our speakers were Ms Jacqueline Poh from IDA Singapore; Mr Lucian Teo from Google Asia; Mr Larry Tchiou, founder of social enterprise UNFRAMED; and, Mr Syakir Hashim, co-founder of social enterprise Skolafund.com and an SIF YSE alumnus.

Over the past six years, Singapore Insights has successfully held a series of conversations, on a range of topics and sometimes including study visits, to promote greater understanding of Singapore’s policy innovations and way of life among our international friends.
