Chapter 1: Mapping the social landscape
An ecosystem describes a self-sustaining community of interdependent organisms interacting with one another in their local environment. This section uses the ecosystem paradigm to provide a bird’s-eye view of the social sector and its patterns and trends. It examines the players of the social and related ecosystems, first, in a global context, then in the Singapore setting. The last chapter ponders the potential changes to the social landscape in Singapore, particularly in light of the Covid-19 and GE2020 disruptions at the start of the new decade.
