Syinc, a Singapore-based a youth group that connects people seeking innovative solutions for social change, has organised Syinconnect 2010.
What is Syinconnect 2010?
Following our inaugural run in 2008, Syinconnect is back this 16-17 October 2010! This time, we’re using a different angle: Using design thinking to tackle social issues.
Over the two-day conference, participants will experience the “design thinking” process through an exploration of the different problems encountered by a particular beneficiary group in Singapore. We are collaborating with an NGO and design professionals, who will guide participants in creating solutions to the problems.
Instead of a conference comprised of a series of talks to learn lessons from others, Syinconnect will take you right into the jungle (as it were) – with a field research element to bring you behind the scenes of the issue and understand it better.
If you are a passionate tertiary student with (some) experience working on social issues/projects, curious, and open to new ideas, we want you. Join us as we experiment with a way of learning and experiencing that hasn’t even been done in Singapore before (until now, that is!).
Only a limited number of Syinconnect places are available. We’ll admit it – we’re prioritising quality of experience over quantity of participants.
The not-so-fine print: A place at Syinconnect is valued at SGD$150. BUT, do apply for our full and partial scholarships – we want everyone who should be there, to be there.
Give us a holler at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask, clarify, critique, muse, suggest, or just send some love!
