Provide people in Singapore with toolkits to encourage storytelling about local news and topical issue areas. Create a movement of amateur local news reporters and celebrate the best.
Dean Curry runs a "Pleasure Angling" business in Deal, Kent. He recently started making Youtube videos to tell people what the weather was like to help potential customers be prepared for their day out. They were so popular he's become a local phenomenon. People now tune in to hear his, often hilarious, forecasts and updates.
How could we do the same for places like Singapore? Provide people with the toolkits they need to tell stories about their local community and promote local news - it could be issue based or more whimsical.
