Commonwealth Conversations - Young and Jobless: Why?


What is causing unemployment in Malaysia? How is it affecting you? What can you do about it?

Nation building School is teaming up with British High Commission in Malaysia to bring great speakers together to talk about this threat that we are facing today. You are not only going to gain interesting insights but also take part in the idea lab session where you will work with other youths to discuss solutions and provide recommendations, what you discussed won't be just written down and stuff in a drawer somewhere, we are bringing this international!

The Commonwealth Conversations is a series of talks under the British High Commission that serves to provide content to heads of government.

The British High Commission will be consolidating the ideas from the youths of commonwealth nations and presenting this in the next Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in April 2018!
