Two Malaysians to attend Nobel Peace Prize in Norway
This year’s Nobel Peace Prize ceremony is being held in Oslo, Norway and Malaysia is searching for two intelligent youths with ideas and courage to participate in the prestigious ceremony.
Organized by DiGi Telecommunications, the selected Malaysian youths will get to represent Malaysia at the Telenor Youth Summit that is held in conjunction with the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, The Rakyat Post reported.
The event this year will be attended by two renowned children’s rights activists; Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize recipient and Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian child right activist and a global frontrunner against child labour.
DiGi’s head of communications and corporate responsibility, Joachim Rajaram said, “This year’s Nobel Peace Prize will be of particular interest to the youth community.”
The three-day event will allow the two selected Malaysians to share their thoughts and ideas on a global platform and make a difference in the world.
“We believe there are more exceptional ideas out there, and are excited to extend the submissions deadline to Oct 29 so more young people can participate and win this once in a lifetime experience,” added Joachim.
The event is a global youth platform that gathers youth between the age of 18 to 25 who have the knowledge and passion regarding the social, economic or environmental issue and have the initiative to change it or an innovative idea using digital communication to create a better future.
To be one of the lucky winners, participants would have to submit their ideas at http://digi.my/tys by 29 October 2014 and stand a chance to win the all-expenses paid trip to participate in the Summit.
