IlluminateSG is a social project which aims to reduce conflicts stemming from misunderstandings. Studies assert that a lack of perspective is the leading driver of conflict. Between the rich and the poor, the foreigners and the locals, the neighbourhood schools and the elite, this is a growing issue in Singapore.
Illuminate addresses this issue by organising "diversity and inclusion" workshops that focus on inculcating practical perspective-awareness techniques, while targeting places of social interactions, such as community centers, schools and corporations. Concurrently, we will expand awareness of this issue and build a community through intensive social media outreach.
By tackling a fundamental cause of conflict, IlluminateSG hopes to be a platform for everyday civil conversations and be the foundation to where greater social initiatives begin.
