Social Distancing A 360 Degree View -

At the TEDxNPSI Singapore 2021, we hope to dive into the theme: “Social Distancing: a 360- degree view”. Social Distancing has become the new normal now, but is it really a new concept? Watch as we break down this buzzword and share some unique ideas surrounding the term. With talks ranging from mental illness to building relationships over the internet, there is something for everyone. We hope you join us as we explore social distancing while socially distancing!
