Warm Greetings from the World Assembly of Youth headquarters in Melaka, Malaysia!
We are pleased to herewith circulate the Report of the 18th Melaka International Youth Dialogue (18th MIYD) “Youth Engineering A Sustainable Urbanisation” that was held from 24th to 28th of June 2018 at the Pantai Puteri Hotel in Melaka, Malaysia. The 18th MIYD was organised by the World Assembly of Youth in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Malaysia, Melaka State Government, the Asian Youth Council, the Commonwealth Youth Council, the Malaysian Youth Council and the Commonwealth Youth Innovation Center.
This theme was tackled at the international level, where it brought together over 140 young people and youth leaders from 42 countries. After comprehensive deliberations through paper presentations, plenary sessions, workshops and field trips, the participants put together an important outcome document that comprised of recommendations to all stakeholders inclusive of young people, in addressing and attaining sustainable urbanisation.
Recognising that in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and latest Urban Agenda, the participants also recommended that they, young people, should be at the forefront of universal transformation in taking actions and encouraging their peers to be responsible and proactive citizens in attainment of sustainable urbanisation.
