Outcomes of STYC
The STYC 2018 Toolkit serves to bridge the knowledge gap that might be present amongst the youth delegates. The toolkit will consist of content from Focus Group Discussions as well as background research performed by the STYC Academic directorate.
The Focus Group Discussions serve to consolidate different perspectives of stakeholders or experts involved and at the same time to structure the Problem Statements for the conference. It aims to provide the knowledge needed for the delegates to discuss these issues and come up with recommendations for these issues. The Academic Directorate will uphold the task in crafting out the issues in the toolkit that will be discussed during the conference. The Academic Panelists serve as mentors and advisors for the Academics Directorate, providing invaluable guidance in shaping the write-ups. The Toolkit will also consist a part in the Youth Manifesto.
The opinions of the youth delegates during the discussions and the experiences shared by the experts will be compiled into a Youth Manifesto. There will be a facilitator and a co-facilitator attached to each group of delegates to facilitate this process. Furthermore, the content from ‘STYC 2018 Toolkit’ will be included in this manifesto. Following the compilation of the manifesto, it will be presented to various ministries and relevant organizations.
The aims of the manifesto are:
To allow other organisations to know the insights of the issues and solutions discussed by Tamil Indian Youths in order to have a better connectivity with the Tamil Indian Community
To empower the youths by providing a platform for relevant organisations to acknowledge and build on their suggestions
To consolidate the research done by NUS TLS on the issues into one document which can be placed at strategic locations (e.g. libraries, schools etc.) so as to provide the student population with background information of pillars and youth’s perspectives of specific issues in Singapore Tamil Indian community with case studies and to provide analysis of past and present measures to tackle the issues
