Social Challenges in Singapore: Empowering Youths to Take Ownership
3rd April 2018, 7.30pm-9.00pm


On 3 April 2018, Mr. Desmond Lee, Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister for Ministry of National Development, visited RC4 to have a closed-door intellectual discourse with RC4 students and fellows. Participants had a lively and interactive session with Mr. Lee on current and future social challenges in Singapore and the various platforms that youths can leverage upon to address these challenges.

A student shared, “It's not every day that we get the chance to interact with a Minister. I enjoyed it and I found it quite insightful. I look forward to maybe more Cognito sessions like this, where we get to interact with some of society's leaders.”

"I’m very encouraged that RC4 students are so inquisitive, mature and socially conscious. Bodes well for Singapore!" - Mr. Desmond Lee
