‘Will You Do You?’

Total Defence Special Exhibition 2020

21 January 2020 to 22 March 2020

Set against the current geopolitical backdrop with issues such as digital threats, climate changes and trade wars which bear an impact on Singapore, the special exhibition casts a spotlight on three Total Defence pillars; Digital Defence, Economic Defence and Psychological Defence. What can we do to defend against these threats?

The exhibition explores how everyone can be better prepared to deal with these challenges to contribute to the whole-of-nation effort, in ensuring Singapore’s survival in face of these evolving threats. It brings about a reminder that each and every one of us can do our part to overcome the challenges that we face today, so we can look forward to the future we want.

An inspirational exhibition on taking ownership of what you can do for Total Defence, discovering the things you may already be active in, and to realise that “you are already doing you”.

Urban Dictionary: “YOU DO YOU” – The act of doing what one believes is the right decision.
