SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

A number of Magsaysay Laureates work on Improving the quality of life of citizens through systemic change.

In the mid-1960s, as Singapore was precariously separated from the Federation of Malaysia, Ramon Magsaysay Awardee GOH KENG SWEE worked with young government technocrats in realizing the dream of an industrialized, trading city-state. Singapore’s economy has since burgeoned – a visible proof of a philosopher-official’s sound planning.

GOH KENG SWEE is among a number of Ramon Magsaysay Awardees who have built sustainable cities and communities that have flourished for the benefit of millions.
