Note from the Director of GYS '08

This symposium is organized with the purpose of challenging youth to come together and to deal with issues faced by the world today in this era of globalisation, setting aside their differences and work towards a common goal. Recognition and acknowledgement of cultural identities, linguistic diversity and each others’ social responsibilities will also be promoted.

Youth are the focus for the future and therefore we believe this event can accelerate ‘youth empowerment’ while at the same time discouraging ‘youth apathy’.

It is hoped that in the long run, the resolution resulting from this event will assist the participants to prepare themselves in facing the challenges ahead as potential world leaders. Through this symposium, it is hope that practical road maps and plans can be produced and implemented.

On that note, do not miss out this worthwhile opportunity to be part of the global youth community!
