What is Natural History? How is it relevant to a highly-urbanised Singapore? Combined with her colonial history, infrastructural capabilities and cultural biases, Singapore has a rich natural heritage story to tell. USP students of the module ULS2208 Biodiversity and Natural History in Singapore will be hosting an exhibition on Natural History in Singapore, and share with you the importance of knowing Nature, even in our urban lives. In challenging one’s ideas on Natural History, they hope to heighten awareness of Singapore’s diverse but oft-neglected natural heritage.
This exhibition is the culmination of a journey that the USP students have undertaken to become budding naturalists. It also constitutes a part of their final assessment for the module. Do support your fellow friends and check out their works!

The terms “Harmony” and “Social Cohesiveness” are often used interchangeably, but they mean differently. Join The Sessions as it invites Mr Viswa Sadasivan, CEO of Strategic Moves, for a lively debate with USP students on the correlation between these two ideas. Whilst harmony has benefitted society in terms of stability and economic growth, continued stress on this can and will erode the trust between Singaporean communities. Faults could appear along racial and socio-economic lines amongst others. We would need to find appropriate ways to deepen public trust and acceptance (beyond tolerance), without necessarily eroding the harmony we have achieved over the years.
Throughout our lives, we have internalised various narratives from the media and loved ones on the bodies society finds acceptable, enviable and even undesirable. Organised by Gender Collective, this closed-door discussion on body ideals hopes to give better clarity on body positivity.
