About Heroes Seminar

Ngee Ann Polytechnic's Heroes Seminar, organized by the School of Interdisciplinary Studies, is a Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) programme which provides a platform for students to engage a broad spectrum of speakers who are role models from different sectors of society. The theme for the 2019 Heroes Seminar was: "My Future City: Singapore 2030". The event  is attended by third year students in the   World Issues from the Singapore Perspective (7WISP) module.    Apart from dialogue sessions, students participated in experiential activities which enhanced their understanding of the event  themes.

About "My Future City: Singapore 2030" Data science, smart cities, artificial intelligence – these are the buzzwords of our time. At the heart of the dazzling array of new technologies are ultimately    people    and   places.  Who are these technologies serving, who are they leaving behind? How do we preserve our culture and sense of belonging while staying at the cutting edge? Can a smart nation be at once sustainable, secure, and inclusive? Shaping the future of our city in the next decade will surely require thoughtful conversations on our values and priorities, greater transdisciplinary collaboration and transformative innovation.
