Overview

The KL International Youth Discourse (KLIYD) is a platform for our youth to discuss geo-political issues in the focus of security, sovereignty, the cultures and the role of religion. KLIYD believed in the importance of empowering our youths to engage in topics concerning our community and world.

As much as our world today is engulfed in social media and a common media to speak out and express concern to our leaders, KLIYD was formed in the belief that the best form of expression and complaint is still one that is direct and face to face. Rather than anonymous, oftentimes hateful dialogue through comments on social media, KLIYD believes that Malaysians today are capable, and need a platform to showcase the ability to dialogue, discuss and debate in manners that maintain maturity.

Beyond just a collective dialogue about security, KLIYD was a symbol of a mature Malaysia we hope to strive for, where debate does not leave one feeling disheartened but instead informed.

KLIYD 2017

Building off of the success of last year’s KLIYD 2016, where we invited experts, policy makers, young professionals, students and NGOs to engage in a dialogue towards defeating extremism, this year’s KLIYD 2017 is intended to carry the momentum futher.

Through the various satelite dialogues we had held across Malaysia, where we focused on topics such as female community involvement, bullying, the role of teachers, the role of parents, as well as interfaith communication, it is clear that the youth of Malaysia want to continue affecting and contributing their ideas towards a more inclusive and open minded Malaysia.

One the whole, the youth do seek a platform to outline their ideas and action plans. They want to be heard, not just on a one off basis but a regular and constructive basis.

Purpose of KLIYD

The purpose of this regional forum holds imperative on five points. The collective of which is vital to both regionally and domestically:
1. To bring together the experts and experienced on regional security
2. To engage youths of Malaysia of this vital discussion
3. To establish a clear line of communication between youths and regional decision makers
4. To establish a platform of networking that will benefit the security of this region
5. To bring forth a clear balance of sovereignty in the question of regional security

In all, the greatest goal this forum can achieve is the feeling of collectivity. From students to lawmakers, from experts to educators, from industry leaders to stakeholders. Bridging this gap between those on the top and those on the streets provides the crucial factor of collectivity, the knowledge that we are together in this process, that no one country is facing the threat alone.
