Hong Kong and Singapore are often considered twin cities on the global stage – it is similar in terms of size and wealth. In this long awaited opportunity to speak in Singapore, I presented the case of Hong Kong. I also learnt a lot about Singapore initiatives from Saidul Islam, Associate Professor of Sociology at NTU, whom I met at MIT when we were both visiting scholars. The cherry on top of the cake is meeting the Foodscape Collective, a group of like-minded scholars, students, activists who are working towards a more food secure Singapore.
