Nation Building School was the supporting partner of 2nd Kuala Lumpur International Youth Discourse (#KLIYD2017) for the second time!
We had a star-studded line-up with Prime Minister Dato' Seri Najib Razak, Defence Minister Dato' Seri Hishamuddin Hussein, Youth & Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin & Menteri Besar Perak Dato' Seri Zambry speaking at KLIYD!
It was held on Sunday 3rd December 2017 in Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) in Kuala Lumpur.
The 2nd KLIYD was themed "Embracing Total Security: Why It Matters". As our global populations grows to 9 billion by 2050, we are straining our world's limited resources. Our activities are changing the climate and destroying our biodiversity. As obesity is on the rise in developed countries, 1 billion around the world are malnourished. With the advent of the digital revolution, more than half of the current jobs will be lost to automation. We are more likely to be threatened by cyberattacks on our digital devices than from being hit from a bullet. These issues are nonconventional threats. Total security goes beyond traditional threats (e.g. conflicts, terrorism) and include nontraditional ones such as food security, climate security and cybersecurity. KLIYD intends to explore security holistically to prepare youths for the future.
Our speakers included:
It was a wide-ranging forum on topics such as ASEAN security, fighting extremism, sustainability and climate change, job security and race relations.
Our leadership team moderated two of the sessions. Principal Nafis Nazri moderated the session with Prof Dr Shashi Jayakumar and Dr Dino Patti Djalal on extremism amongst youth. Our Managing Principal Marques moderated the session with The Honourable YB Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, Minister of Defence.
As a Community Partner, our leadership team prepared a series of articles on 2nd KLIYD 2017:
We are youth platform aiming to shape the future, one mind at a time.
