The Urban Thinkers Campus: Faith-based Engagement in the New Urban Agenda (UTC) is a global working gathering of multi-faith communities and organisations, at the United Nation’s first ever initiation and invitation for all faith-based groups to make significant contributions to the work of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (otherwise known as the UN-Habitat). It is an opportunity and a platform for a multi-faith dialogue to take place on the future of cities, a matter that all religious communities have a common stake in. The main focus in this UTC is in active discussion, strategic thinking and development of the New Urban Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals, particularly in making cities and human settlements more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. It is the first of such collaboration between the religious and non-religious entities; designed and aimed towards a continuous, long-term partnership between the UN-Habitat and the religious community so as to support areas of shared concern around the New Urban Agenda that are ecumenical and multi-faith.

study guide
1. Out of the 10 inspiring stories of missionaries sent from Singapore, which story do you like best? Why?
2. Do you agree that God has given children a sense of curiosity and a mind full of imagination? At play, they explore the world they live in. The school, the church and the home can provide wonderful opportunities for children to learn about different people and cultures in the wonderful world God has created.
3. How many types of occupations can you list from the 10 missionary stories? Have you started to think about what you would like to do when you grow up?
4. Can you match the missionaries with their occupations? Whether you are a medical doctor or a dental nurse, a pastor or a teacher, a business leader or a community worker, you can serve God in missions using your special interest, talent and training.
5. It is never too early to wonder about life. Many of the missionaries asked questions even when they were young. Some of them experienced bullying, disappointments, unhappiness and even family problems when they were young. They learnt about the purpose of their lives when they started talking to parents, pastors and teachers in church. Do you talk to your parents and teachers about your hopes and fears?
6. Do you realize that God can use your childhood interests, experiences and education to be a blessing to the people around you? Whether it is learning about science, geography, or enjoying the fishing at the beach or making music, it takes hard work to become good at what you like to do. So work hard, play hard and enjoy your childhood.
