NUS Tamil Language Society is proud to have organized the Singapore Tamil Youth Conference 2018, which was headed by its Chairman, Halida Thanveer and Vice-Chairman, Jason Lorenzo that took place on the 21st and 22nd July. With the support of around 100 youth, the conference served well in engaging the youth in thought-provoking discussions and exposing themselves to new skills such as film-making.
Over the two days, the delegates had come up with recommendations to tackle the issues discussed and presented them to Mr Vikram Nair (MP for Sembawang GRC, Vice-Chairman, REACH) during the closing ceremony.
Ms Halida said to Online Voice that, ‘The summary of the discussions has already been submitted to REACH, government feedback unit to see how some of the ideas can be converted into actions. The Youth Manifesto will also be compiled and distributed as a way to archive the conference proceedings as well as to allow organizations to take up some of the suggestions’.
NUS TLS thank their Guest of Honour for the Opening Ceremony, Mr Anbarasu Rajendran (Acting – CEO, SINDA) and Guest of Honour for the Closing Ceremony, Mr Vikram Nair (MP for Sembawang GRC, Vice-Chairman, REACH) for gracing their event.
