Singapore Perspectives 2014 – Dialogue with Minister for Education, Mr Heng Swee Keat
Singapore Perspectives is the flagship event of the Institute of Policy Studies. An annual conference to take stock of recent developments in Singapore, it aims to offer insights into the key trends in the country over the short and medium terms.

The theme of Singapore Perspectives 2014 will be “Differences”: What are the differences that have defined Singapore society in the past and continue to do so in the present? What are the new differences that have emerged in the recent past and how do we propose to overcome them? How will we wrestle with that persistent problem of multi-racial, multi-religious, multi-cultural, multi-diverse societies: Fashion unity out of differences?

About Steve Jobs

A child put up for adoption soon after birth, a college dropout who just had a single calligraphy course as his formal education could never have been a millionaire until he is Steve Jobs.

Now this name is synonymous with élan. Jobs preached that no matter what happens in your life, struggles in school or an unsuccessful career path—every aspect will somehow help you down the road. “Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards,” Jobs said. “So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something—your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” Jobs gave an inspiring commencement address at Stanford in 2005. Though he is not with us anymore, he made sure that he leaves behind a giant company we all know it today as the Apple.

The Singapore Vertical-Farms that herald an Agricultural Revolution

In Singapore, the challenge of feeding a growing population is pushing the concept of urban farming to new heights. A super-efficient vertical farming system is producing greens for 5 million residents.

“Can we supply enough food for everyone on the planet?” is a question plaguing leaders around the world. In Singapore SkyGreen offers one example of how this might be possible, “not just technically, but economically”. By increasing their food security while reducing the impact of food production on global climate change, SkyGreen is 10 times more productive per square foot than conventional farming.
