Description

On 15 March 2018, over 100 countries across the globe including SIngapore will make a stand to speak passionately for a cause at World Speech Day. This annual event celebrates the power of speech to uphold causes that help make the world a better place to live and work in. All speeches will be captured via live streaming on YouTube and beamed to the Internet community.

For World Speech Day SIngapore this year at Lee Kong Chian Auditorium at 1st level of YMCA of Singapore at Dhoby Ghaut area, we will celebrate the power of lifelong leanring and its tremendously positive impact on global and local communities. Riding on the theme 'Learning Journeys: Learning and Leadership', the speakers will cover different facets of lifelong learning including SkillsFuture, a national movement where everyone gets a second chance to improve their station of life through education and training.

Amongst the highlights are: Keynote Speech by Guest of Honour Ms Joan Pereira, Member of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar GRC; an inaugural Empowering Women segment that speaks powerfully on how we can empower disadvantaged and abused women with a new lease of hope; and a highly charged speech competition of up to 12 youths at Youth Speakers Showcase.
