Description

Vision 2030: Joint project led by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) and Sport Singapore presents a plan on how sports can help Singaporeans live a better and healthier life, age gracefully, and unite our community.* With the introduction of a O-level subject: Exercise and Sports Science, it also states the intention of Ministry of Education (MOE), for science to take a more important role, whether it is in the way we live, or on competitive platforms, or simply as an interest.

Hear from our guest speaker Jamie Lye, Senior Sport Dietitian at National Youth Sports Institute, on the importance of having skilled sport scientists to help drive the national strategies and aspirations.
