Meet the winners of Frasers Property's Inclusive Spaces award

The initiative is directed towards the promotion of intergenerational dialogue.

Frasers Property announced the winners of its Inclusive Spaces awards, which focuses on active ageing and better intergenerational engagement in Singapore. 

Young upper-primary and lower-secondary students, active senior citizens, youth facilitators and Frasers Property employee volunteers came together to co-create and reimagine ideas for more inclusive real estate projects.

The three winning teams were from Edgefield Primary School, Westwood Secondary School and Yumin Primary School. Yumin Primary School's “Forever Young Club” can be located at a mall or residential development and offers recreational space for seniors to mingle, explore and learn through various activities to keep their minds and bodies active.

Six teams in five primary and secondary schools were recognized for their ideas at the award showcase event, granted by Associate Professor Dr. Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Minister of State for National Development.

“Through this initiative, we hope to develop greater empathy in our youth and tap on their creative energy for ideas that make real estate spaces more inclusive for our Merdeka Generation. With a fast-greying society, having spaces and community initiatives that promote the well-being of our seniors is even more pressing. We are heartened by the innovative proposals from student participants, made possible by the open sharing and strong collaboration from active seniors, underlining the benefit of intergenerational dialogue," said Frasers Property COO Chia Khong Shoong.

Daily living, mental well-being and social living were the three deciding factors for the awards.  

More than 100 teams composed of four to six upper primary or lower secondary students were made. Schools included were Edgefield Primary School, Yumin Primary School, Orchid Park Secondary, Pei Hwa Secondary School and Westwood Secondary School. Twenty youth mentors also contributed to the teams. 

Twenty-five seniors, meanwhile, from ACE Seniors, Singapore Anglican Community Services, TOUCH Community Services, People’s Association, Lions Befrienders and Council for Third Age, were tapped for their perspectives on areas for improvement.
