Future Ready Youth

In conjunction with national #HariBelia2019 festivities this weekend, we thought we’d loop back around to our coverage of the recent National Youth Congress held in June.

The event, held at the International Convention Centre saw our future leaders come together to discuss the most pressing issues of our time—climate change, employment, navigating the new global workplace, and keeping pace with technological advancements.

The forum saw the our youth engaging in dialogue with policymakers to discuss the ambitious goals of Wawasan 2035 (Vision 2035) and the readiness of the youth to meet them.

The two-day event was packed with workshops, keynote speeches and Q&A sessions and with international industry professionals and thought leaders.
At the end of the event, the attendees developed a resolution aligned with the three themes of the National Youth Congress—youth entrepreneurship, future ready youth and youth participation.
