#GE2020 Raising socio-political literacy and civic engagement in Singapore (CAPE’s Huang Runchen and Joel Yew)

The Nine Days is a socialservice.sg podcast covering the 2020 general election in Singapore (#GE2020), through daily five-minute news summaries, conversations with young voters, and interviews with academics and experts.

In “What’s going on with young voters?”, we chat with young Singaporean voters on their perspectives as well as their constituency observations.

CAPE, or the Community for Advocacy and Political Education, is a student-run organisation based at Yale-NUS College. This independent, non-partisan community of students works to increase political literacy and consciousness, and it does so through different project-based initiatives. They include seminars, conferences, and workshops, as well as producing resources, infographics, and research. Today, I speak to coordinators Huang Runchen and Joel Yew, who share how they got started, their projects, and CAPE’s future aspirations.
