29 May - 2 June 2023 & 28 August - 1 September
Malaysia’s diversity is its biggest strength, but also its biggest challenge. In a world where differences can easily divide communities, it is important for Malaysia’s long-term sustainability that young Malaysians know how to harmoniously live with people of different cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds.
Through our bilingual programme (conducted in English and Malay), participants will mingle with peers from different backgrounds and explore various perspectives of identity, diversity and inclusion, while making new friendships to last for a lifetime.
Sekolah Diversiti aims to cultivate cross-cultural understanding among youth to become equipped leaders who will foster inclusivity in their communities. Through an interactive retreat filled with workshops, discussions, and reflections, participants will be inspired to think critically as they learn various perspectives and beliefs, tackling the big question faced by multicultural societies: how do we best live together in diversity?
By the end of the programme, participants are expected to start their own capstone project as a continued exploration and appreciation of diversity and how it manifests in various communities across Malaysia.
