Our Report, Now Online

Finally, we have uploaded the entire report online, check it out here.

The One Young World ‘Impact’ Report features top Malaysian youth leaders and showcase 100 youth projects from Malaysia. The Impact report addresses the participation of young people in tackling pressing issues and creating positive impact in their respective communities.  Alongside these are forewords from the Hon. Prime Minister of Malaysia, the CEO of MDeC Malaysia and the Youth Trust Foundation, myHarapan.

It was presented to 1200 youths from 170 countries. It also landed in the hands of HKH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, who is also the co-founder of Global Dignity; Kate Robertson and David Jones, who are the founders of the One Young World Summits. 

Through this report, the team hopes to empower the youths, - from young leaders at One Young World Summit to, most importantly, Malaysians from all aspects of society - to realize their ideas and solutions for their communities. One can observe all those skills which would be needed for a youth leader to lead campaigns and movements.

Bernie's Experience at The One Young World Summit

Hope life is exciting where you are!

At the one young world youth summit last weekend in Zurich (, they had 170 countries represented and over 1200 youths. it was truly an experience to listen to others share about the issues in their respective countries and the actions taken to solve them. Many powerful sharing sessions by youth and global leaders.
After a week in Zurich, Switzerland, I'm am now in London with my family.
So far so amazing. In terms of travelling in the Swiss country side, I have been to the Zurich zoo, interlaken / Swiss alps, Bern (capital city), Luzern, and Geneva.

Fresh air, clear blue water and many fluffy swans. I love the spinach quiche here.

After returning to Malaysia on 17th Sept, I'll be hanging around Singapore for a bit. Miss the paradise island a lot. Can't wait to see the Botanical Gardens again, there's nothing like it.

So seize the day and enjoy the good life along with the many pleasant surprises it brings !

Launching Towards the Summit

First off, this 31st of August is Malaysia’s 54th Independence Day! We usually name it Merdeka Day, Mederka meaning freedom in the Bahasa Malaysia language.

We, the One Young World Impact Report are proud to proclaim the completion of our report a few days ago.

After a penultimate look through by Mushamir and Jonathan, coupled with a post-launch meeting with Lionel, we discussed about what other things have been left out or needed to be added. We decided that a circular flag of Malaysia had to be included to polish the report in Malaysia’s pride. With email instructions, Jon supervised our art director Bernie for the last, final touches, and it was finally sent to the printer.

The report will be published soon. Please stay updated with this blog as we will announce its printing completion.

For now, Mushamir and Lionel are staying behind in Malaysia to handle the local media in Malaysia in spreading awareness about this report and One Young World.

Visionary Leader Michael Teoh, Project Leader/Editor Jonathan and Art Director Bernie are off to Zurich, Switzerland, for the One Young World Summit 2011 along with the CEO of MyHarapan, Mr. Roslan!

We wish them all the best of luck! Make Malaysia proud!
