Instil Rukun Negara in youth

Date:

KUCHING: About 40 youth participated in an interactive session called ‘Rukun Negara: Do You(th) think it’s important?’ which was organised by Owl and Badger Research at Grand Margherita Hotel on Saturday.

The participants were between ages of 16 and 26 from diverse institutions and various backgrounds.

The session was divided into three parts involving live polling through mobile phones, audience participation in an open floor session, and a dialogue session in accordance with the standard operating procedure (SOP).

Owl & Badger Research managing partner Deborah Dris said it is hopes they could organise more events that involve the youth of Sarawak in the near future to enlighten the importance to the people, in particular the young generation, the true essence of Rukun Negara.

“The Rukun Negara, our country’s declaration of national philosophy which was established in 1970, will be turning 50 this year. 

“It was constituted to foster unity among Malaysians as a result of racial riots in 1969,” she said.

The one-day event was also supported by The Sarawak Drive, Teach for Malaysia Alumni Network, Sarawak United National Youth Organisation (Saberkas) Pending branch and Khong Guan Borneo Biscuits Factory.
