The Young Peacemakers UnConference took place on September 27, 2019 at the UCSI University Ballroom and Recital Hall with a total of 225 participants, all UCSI students. This event was organised by the UCSI SDG Secretariat Office with the support of other partners. The event was divided into the morning session and the afternoon session. The morning session took place at the UCSI University Block E Ballroom from 8.30am to 1.30pm.
In this session, participants were divided into 12 groups and each group had 10 to 12 members. Each group was tasked with making dresses from different ethnicities which were randomly picked by the group leaders. This activity helped the participants learn more about other ethnicities and get the opportunity to display their dresses on stage.
In addition, there were presentations from the 3rd and 4th winners of the “My Future Malaysia: Aspiration and Action” competition organised by the UCSI Faculty of Social Science and Liberal Arts (General Studies), and also the “Activator: Climate Change and Peace” presentation by CAREvolution. This session rounded up with lunch prepared by Le Quadri Hotel.
