Youth and Adults: Collaboration for a better world
Thursday, 8 September 2011








#RAGEchat: Youth
An excellent opportunity for young people to get peers and adults to listen to them. Finally!

#RAGEchat: Youth is part of an inter-generational dialogue between young people and ehem...oldies on the topic Youth and Adults: Collaboration of Forces for a Better World. This will provide young Twitterers a platform to talk with peers and adults to promote youth participation in Malaysia.

It is organised in support of the Malaysia launch of UNICEF’s flagship report, the State of the World’s Children Report for 2011, themed Adolescence – An Age of Opportunity.



Thursday, 8 September * 4:10pm – 5:30pm











The Panel, facilitated by Mr. Chris Ng, will comprise the following adults:

• YB Senator Dato’ Sri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil
   Minister of Women, Family & 
  Community Development

• Mr. Hans Olsen
  UNICEF Representative to Malaysia

• Puan Hanim binti Hassan
  Social Worker

• En Muhammad Zarif
  President of Parent Teacher Association
  Assunta Primary School Petaling Jaya

• Mrs Anant Kaur Hardyal Singh
  Senior Assistant Pupils Affairs
  Assunta Primary School Petaling Jaya







Internet is (almost) everything to young people today and when used appropriately, it can be an excellent tool for empowering adolescents to speak out.

On what issues? Well, almost anything and everything that are important to them.

Empowering youths to make their opinions known through common platforms such as the Internet and social media outlets help level inequalities and discrimination on all levels.
