TL;DR – With you, for you, for Singapore.

The Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) is inviting Singaporeans to form a workgroup to give input on the Singapore Citizenship Journey programme.

According to The Straits Times, the recruitment drive, which was launched last week (16 Jan), will allow 100 Singaporeans to be part of a group who will have a say on what it means to be Singaporean. The workgroup will also get to shape the mandatory curriculum which new citizens undergo before becoming full-fledged members of Singaporean society.

This initiative, said to be the first of its kind, will involve Singaporeans in the process of capturing the shared values, norms, rights and obligations of new citizens.

From now till 21 February, Singaporeans aged 15 and above who are interested to be part of the workgroup can register here.

Workgroup participants should expect to be involved in several discussion groups from March to July this year.

Suggestions gathered from the workgroup are planned to be rolled out progressively by the end of 2020.

Netizens chimed in with ideas and suggestions

Some enthusiastic netizens, who couldn’t wait to share their thoughts, were quick to give their suggestions under The Straits Times’ Facebook post.

Here are some of the most entertaining ones:
