Synopsis

This workshop is based on a recently-completed study at LKYCIC. How is Singapore identity evolving in the new diversity? The research identifies key trends in the evolution of societal diversity in Singapore, including chapters on race, religion, migration, and other emerging trends. Focusing on the future, we have constructed personas of imagined city-dwellers in 2040.
