These sessions are for youths aged 15 to 35 from our National Youth Council (NYC) Singapore communities (Holler!, INSPIRIT, YCS etc) who are passionate about government policies or issues such as environment & sustainability, mental health, future of work & jobs, inclusivity and global awareness. Through national-level conversations, youths will also get a chance to shape Government decisions and learn how it balances trade-offs to arrive at policy decisions.
Through Kopi Sessions, youths are assured of a safe space to start conversations, respectfully share their unique views and broaden their perspectives about national issues.
The National Youth Council has supported youth-led talks and workshops on topics youths are concerns about. Details of three recent peer to peer engagements can be found below.
