REPORT OF THE WORLD YOUTH CONFERENCE IN MALAYSIA

   
18-01-2010  As at 27th of October, 2009, Youth members from various countries had arrived the venue (Istana Hotel, Kualar Lumpur).

 

 
 28th of October marked the 1st Day of the World Youth Conference which commenced with arrival of delegates/guests. The Conference was officially opened by the Honorable Minister of Youth and Sports, Malaysia - YB Dato Ahmad Shabery cheek, followed by opening ceremony and NEGARAKU (Malaysia's National Anthem).

Welcome Address by Bro. Mohammed Shafie BP Mammal - the President of UNI Malaysian Liaison Council. Also, an address by Keith Pollord (UNI Youth President).

Coincidentally, Keith Pollord (UNI Youth President) was a year older on this great day, hence, the surprise presentation of a beautiful cake by the Malaysian Liaison Council to mark his birthday.

The 1st day activities proceeded with regional reports, plenary discussion and elections of Credential and Resolution Committees.

NETWORKING AND COMMUNICATION - these duo tools for effective trade unionism were analyzed among active UNI Youth and led to a workshop that produced four (4) groups.


UNI Africa Youth's Delegates had dinner together, this enabled us meet as clique from Africa, interact and most importantly met with the UNI Africa Youth President whom was elected in absential during the last UNI africa Youth Conference in Hammammet, Tunisia. Elizabeth Denyoh Amah extended her gratitude to fellow African Youth for believing in her by giving our mandate in her absence.

29th of October, 2009, being the 2nd day of the Conference commenced with report-back from the four (4) groups followed by:
 

  • A presentation by Andriana Rosenvay of UNIGLOBAL
  • UNI Youth Organizing and Training Events
A mere presentation could not explain what 'ORGANIZING' means to young trade unionist, thus, the formation of another four (4) groups to extensively discuss, share organizing experiences, fashion-out latest trend e.t.c.

Youth participation in Nagazaki 2010 was aggressively discussed and also led to group discussion.

The underlisted five (5) motions were presented before the Resolution committee for adoption.


  1. 100% Youth Co-ordinator
     2.   Education for all

     3.   A new order for the financial and economic sector -
           we won't pay for your crisis.

     4.   Strengthening Youth representation in Nagazaki 2010

By and large, Resolution was drafted to be forwarded to the UNI World Executive Board.
