Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) partnered with Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) to hold a sharing session with some independent ground up movements in Singapore. There were a total of 15 attendees, with representatives from movements like The Morning Greeters and Elson Soh from Project Awareness.
The sharing session was an intimate one chaired by representatives from MCCY. The discussion topics involved promoting neighbourliness as well finding solutions to cope with disputes among neighbours. Heartening initiatives were suggested by various movements, such as using food as a means of creating an open and cordial environment among neighbours. Problematic cases of neighbourly disputes were also discussed and suggestions such as personally mirroring good neighbourly conduct to each other were raised.
Dr William Wan (General Secretary of SKM) who was present ended the session by reaffirming the importance of personally extending kindness to our neighbours so as to nurture a neighbourhood where kindness blooms.
