A nation where Honour and Honouring are well understood and widely practised
To seek the well-being of the nation by promoting a culture of Honour and Honouring
Honour (Singapore) is motivated by two concerns about the future of Singapore:
Honour as Singapore’s Blueprint for Success
The blueprint for Singapore’s success in the last 50 years has been that of human imagination and hard work, as well as the courage to be different and unique –– founded on honour, integrity and trust. In other words, that we are a people who can be trusted to deliver on our promises.
Such a culture of honour remains essential for Singapore’s future. This is still the blueprint for Singapore’s continued survival and success.
Honour as an Enabler for Constructive, Respectful Debate
We can expect increasingly robust debates and social action on a widening array of national issues. There must be a strong vein of honour and mutual respect between individuals and groups, even when there may be sharp differences in views. This enables respectful, constructive debate over issues of national life.
Trust determines the quality of relationships in our community and society. Honour is the foundation of trust.
We believe a culture of honour and honouring should be our compass as we head, as always, into the uncharted waters of our future.
