Architects of Diversity / Malaysia
18-25 August 2018
Do you ever wonder about… who am I? What do I care about? What are my passions? How can I impact my community positively? How can I meet and connect with other like-minded young people? UWC Short Course Malaysia: Architects of Diversity, is a one-week, bilingual (English and Malay) residential program for young Malaysians. Through interactive workshops, games, debates, and role-playing, participants will tackle the big question faced by societies that are defined by their difference: how do we best live together in difference and diversity?
At this Short Course, participants will:
- Make lifelong friendships with 40 students from various backgrounds all over Malaysia.
- Engage in open, constructive forum to discuss, debate and learn about important issues facing us as a society: identity formation, multiculturalism, and social responsibility.
- Express your opinions confidently and empathize with perspectives different from your own.
- Become part of a global community of changemakers, and connect with other engaged and like-minded young people from all over the world.
Free. Food, accommodation and transport to and from KL Sentral to the campsite is covered.
In addition to the fully subsidized cost of the program, travel stipends are available to participants with demonstrated need (in particular, those who live further away from the Klang Valley and/or belong to lower income brackets).
