On April 8th 2017, UNAM Youth collaborated with United Nations Youth Chapter Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UNYC UKM) to organise its first UNAM Youth Congress.
The event was attended by leaders from 7 of UNAM Youth Chapters’, namely:
1) Universiti Malaya
2) Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia
3) International Islamic University Malaysia
4) Sunway University
5) Universiti Utara Malaysia
6) Universiti Malaysia Sarawak and
7) Curtin University Malaysia,
with the aim to improve the current organisational structure of UNAM Youth and its Youth Chapters, besides setting new milestones for potential collaboration.
The Youth Congress was an exciting opportunity for UNAM Youth and the existing Youth Chapters to re-new rapport between both entities.
During the Youth Congress, the delegates were actively engaged in exploring how UNAM Youth and its Youth Chapters can tackle internal and external challenges by identifying contemporary solutions, and how the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals can be implemented at local levels with further collaboration from all sides.
The next UNAM Youth Congress will tentatively be held in Universiti Malaya in October 2017.
