Kuala Lumpur, 2 October 2023 – The Initiative to Promote Tolerance and Prevent Violence (INITIATE.MY) participated in a Youth Roundtable Discussion organised by the LUMINATE Foundation. The workshop gathered 28 youth leaders from various backgrounds in the civil society sector. The workshop’s primary aim encompassed a collaborative exchange of best practices in fostering youth participation and engagement, aspirations and experiences of young activists and researchers. 

The roundtable explored various aspects of working in the social impact industry from the perspective of a youth person. It also served as a space to recenter participants on their involvement in the social impact and why it matters to them. The roundtable discussion also explored other topics such as professional growth, mental health and financial responsibilities.

INITIATE.MY applauds Luminate Foundation for offering a valuable platform to young professionals engaged in the social impact sector. INITIATE.MY firmly believes that such a space is essential for enabling youth to connect with like-minded individuals who share their dedication to driving positive social change including in social cohesion and tolerance. 

It allows them to openly discuss the challenges encountered in the civil society profession and collectively brainstorm solutions. The objective is to cultivate an inclusive ecosystem that empowers youth, placing a strong emphasis on incorporating youth perspectives and leadership.
