A webinar session was organized recently for about 800 young Singaporeans as part of the Asia-Ready Exposure Programme. The session touched on the importance of data protection amid digitalisation, and was the second of seven sessions.
The Asia-Ready webinar series was launched last month by the National Youth Council (NYC), in partnership with the Singapore Institute of International Affairs and Asean Business Youth Association.
The programme aims to equip young Singaporeans with cross-cultural skills. It will run till March next year, and give the youth insights into some issues and opportunities in Asia, enhance their appreciation for the region and equip them with relevant knowledge in the evolving socioeconomic climate.
Under the Asia-Ready programme, participants will also take on e-learning modules to learn more about the language and culture of Asean, China and India. They will have to work on a local project curated by the organisers to broaden their exposure to Asia’s growing economies, as well as attend facilitated debrief sessions to reflect and share their experience.
