Nation Building School would like to invite you to the inaugural KL International Youth Discourse (KLIYD) 2016. KLIYD is a platform for young Malaysians to engage in international affairs. It is focused on the topics of security, sovereignty, culture and the role of religion. 

Four prominent Malaysian government leaders will be speaking at KLIYD 2016.

DATE : 26th November 2016 (Saturday)

TIME : 8.00 AM - 5.00 PM

VENUE : Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC)
41, Jalan Tun Ismail, Chow Kit, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan, Malaysia

THEME: “Empowering youth for a safer and better future”
KLIYD 2016 will focus on the role of youth in combating radicalism and extremism, currently plaguing our region. The horrors of ISIS in the Middle East has manifested itself in the attacks in Jakarta, the Philippines and even in our own soil with the recent spate of kidnappings in Sabah. The threat is not perception; it's real. Young people need to be involved; thus, the need for KLIYD.
