Bridging Past, Present and Future / Online

24 July 2021

17 July - 19 July and 22 July - 24 July 2021

Bridging Past, Present and Future is a bilingual (English and Malay) online programme for young Malaysians aged 16-19 years old.

The Short Course targets youth interested in learning more about Malaysian historical events and how they play into our current political reality. Participants will explore topics like identity, discrimination, ideology and conflict to better understand how they can be effective changemakers in their own communities.

During the Short Course, participants will:

  • Engage in interactive workshops and debates about the diverse issues we face as a society: identity formation, narratives, and social responsibility
  • Explore Malaysia’s history and political landscape through simulations and fact-finding missions to understand how norms and narratives are constructed
  • Learn how to make a positive impact in your own communities and be prepared to launch your own project (research, event, campaign - it’s entirely up to you!)

As a participant, you will:

  • Make friendships with 30 youth changemakers from various backgrounds all over Malaysia
  • Receive a certificate of completion and a participant pack (with a t-shirt, notebook and other course materials)
  • Produce a capstone project to generate sustainable change in your own community

Don’t miss your chance at an opportunity of a lifetime - apply now!
