IPYG, the Voice of Peace filled the minds of the Future Leaders in Malaysia
At the AIESEC Youth Speak Forum which was held on 14 May 2016 at Miri Curtin University, Malaysia, the IPYG Team won an award for Excellent Workshop. AIESEC (International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences) is an independent, non-for-profit organization run by students. Over 50,000 students of 1,700 universities in 110 countries are active members of the organization.
The IPYG has maintained close ties with members of the Malaysian chapter and headquarters of AIESEC. While preparing to carry out peace activities together, the IPYG was introduced to a person in charge of the AIESEC Youth Speak Forum. And at this Forum, the IPYG held an event to urge support for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).
Squeenie Shunkwan Tsang, the regional manager of the IPYG, held a workshop on HWPL’s project in international law before 150 students of Curtin University. She began the workshop by introducing HWPL, Chairman Man Hee Lee, and the IPYG. Then, the IPYG explained about the peace activities that have been carried out worldwide and urged support for the DPCW.
After the workshop, the students grouped into four teams and discussed plans for signature campaign in support of the DPCW in schools. The IPYG will continue working to execute these plans in Malaysia.
