Default WORLDview360 @ South West 2010

The WORLDview360 is an initiative by the South West Community Development Council (CDC) to engage youths to think globally and contribute locally, and provide an educational and engaging platform for discussion of topical issues. Since 2004, WORLDview360 has engaged both local and foreign youths on a range of national issues such as education, service and environment.

As part of ongoing efforts to deepen youth participation in the community, the South West CDC is pleased to bring back WORLDview360 @ South West 2010, which will be held from 22 May to 11 June 2010. The WORLDview360 will focus on a key national challenge -- National and Social Integration -- and engage local and international pre-tertiary and tertiary students in an experiential programme to understand three potential divides in Singapore : a) Singaporeans and Non-Singaporeans; b) Successful and Less Successful; c) Race, Religion and Culture.
