Petition: the National University of Singapore goes cashless





"On the 16th of April 2018, the National University of Singapore sent a campus wide email announcing a decision to "introduce a cashless campus in the new Academic Year 2018/19, where our retail and dining outlets, including canteens and food courts, will offer cashless transactions". With this announcement, NUS has plans to move toward such a campus in "phases".
This petition serves to counteract this decision and ask for further clarifications and justifications for the push toward a "cashless campus". It also asks whether we really need to have a complete cashless campus, let alone a cashless Singapore? Is a partially cashless campus a more inclusive option? Allowing all students, staff, faculty members, and consumers alike to have both options, keeping the cash while having the option to go 'cashless' too."

The cashless society from an ethical point of view

The debate about the move towards a cashless society has been at the center of the scene for several years, now. Various angles have been taken by economists, politicians, banking institutions and sociologists. Beyond the technicalities of the debate, lies the question of freedom, of inter-citizen solidarity and of governmental responsibility. The debate cannot remain in the hands of financial specialists, it is first and foremost an ethical, political and societal issue.
