Diversity is a source of strength for societies, and engaging meaningfully with difference is not easy, but it is necessary, President Halimah Yacob said on Wednesday (June 19) in a speech where she outlined three key ingredients for social harmony.
These are accommodation, dialogue and social cohesion, which must be nurtured by individuals rather than just governments, she said.
“Friendships and connections will have to be built, face to face,” she said. “Social trust has to be forged, one positive encounter at a time.”
The conference is organised by the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) at the Nanyang Technological University, with the support of the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth.
