IPOH, Aug 17 (Bernama) – At the opening of the first meeting of the second session of the 2nd Perak Youth Assembly today, delegates were urged to be passionate and proactive in ensuring the state’s progress.
State youth and sports development committee chairman, Howard Lee Chuan How, said motions or proposals should be championed in order to get the state government to bring about change.
“At the very least, this forum will help the state government implement the ideas or hear the voices of the younger generation.
“I’ve asked the delegates to present a report to me about their contributions and achievements thus far via activities and programmes they’ve carried out,” he told reporters after the opening ceremony.
He said some changes are being implemented at this two-day sitting in Bangunan Perak Darul Ridzuan, such as input from the debates will be used for drafting state policy.
He said approved proposals will also be brought before the State Executive Council and an action plan will become standard in reports.
He said five motions will be tabled during this Perak Youth Assembly session and included are the creation of a Perak Volunteer Community for structured volunteering activities, vocational education for secondary school students, the expansion and empowerment of the Perak Youth Hub in every district and making Perak plastic bag free.
