Disease X - How to prepare for future pandemics
The Covid-19 pandemic changed the course of human history, but it could be just the beginning. A potential unknown pathogen, referred to by the UN as ‘Disease X’, could be just around the corner.

In this session we’ll explore how societies are making themselves pandemic-proof and building readiness for the next global health crisis.

Going beyond liveable: Towards lovable smart cities
Pride. Passion. Joy. Smart cities can bring us towards livability, but how can government agencies collaborate together to create thriving societies? As Singapore enters a new post-pandemic era, this session will explore how cities can go one step further from livability and foster lovability.
10:00 - 11:00
Citizen-centricity at the heart of digital transformation 
Low code, AI and data are leading the way in governments’ push for digital transformation. But how can they use such tech most effectively to better serve citizens? In this session, we’ll explore how public officers across government are pursuing digital transformation with a purpose – to ensure that their services are citizen-centric to the core.

Developing the new generation of public officers 
What makes the perfect public officer? Government agencies are increasingly looking for outside-the-box thinkers, not just booksmart candidates.

Government agencies rethinking traditional hiring and training strategies will share what the next generation public officer looks like, how they can be best trained to serve the public, and the infrastructure and tools that will let them flourish.
