  DEPARTMENT PROGRAMMES

Contemporary Singaporean Issues Forum

The Contemporary Singaporean Issues or CSI Forum is held annually for upper secondary students in NCHS to understand the interconnectedness of Singapore and the world they live in. It also hopes to develop students as active thinkers and learners, and cultivate active citizenry.

 

The year’s theme for the 3rd CSI Forum is “Diversity: Opportunities and Challenges”. Singapore has become increasingly diverse due to the rapid pace of globalisation. On the one hand, diversity presents opportunities that can bring about positive outcomes. On the other hand, it can also present challenges that may lead to negative outcomes if these challenges are not managed effectively. Hence, it is vital that Singapore embraces diversity; harness the opportunities presented and at the same time mitigate the challenges that can potentially harm the society. The Forum provides a platform for students to share their findings on the impact of diversity, in Singapore, as well as its affordances.
