50th Anniversary

As the SIIA celebrates its 50th anniversary, it aims to develop thinking and the sharing of perspectives about changes that will be key to considering Singapore’s potential roles and challenges in the next 50 years, in the context of Asia and the world.

In March 2012, the SIIA hosted a roundtable with Helen Clark, United Nations Development Programme Administrator, which brought young activists, social entrepreneurs and academics together to talk about current issues affecting Singaporeans. As part of its new move to the Atrium, the SIIA hopes to continue to grow its strong links and partnerships with civil society organisations in Singapore.
