STEP Sociovation Forum 2021

Fully-funded by Temasek Foundation, the Centre for Experiential (CEL) will be bringing back Sociovation Forum 2021, this time with a focus on environment advocacy via visual storytelling. Sociovation will continue to bring youths from Singapore and across the region together. This will be a hybrid programme – with both physical and virtual sessions happening concurrently.

About STEP Sociovation Forum 2021

Young environmentalists often feel powerless at the extent of the damage to their natural environment. How can they document the narratives of affected communities? And how can they advance their environmental causes?

The recent surge of viral social media content is testament to the immense power of visual storytelling. Short social documentaries have the potential to seed change by curating new narratives, encouraging new behaviours, and engaging in new conversations for social change.

The complexities of today’s climate and sustainability challenges demand that we learn how to leverage one another’s strengths, working together in collaboration. This programme will take 70 young leaders from ASEAN and Greater China Region through the process of research and story-scouting, narrative crafting, visual literacy and the technical aspects of basic filmmaking. You will walk away empowered to tell compelling stories that matter.

Target Participants

Students who are passionate about environmental sustainability, and are committed to social change and impact. Interest and passion for honing skills in visual storytelling is ideal. Singaporean and regional applicants (ASEAN & Greater China Region) must be undergraduates from public/ state-funded universities.
