Gathering of Youth for Unity- An Invitation

You need to embrace unity, to manage diversity.

To be effective leaders, you need to know how to manage diversity. This is a valuable skill in today’s globalized world. To be nationally and internationally relevant, you need to know about the sociopolitical environment of the country, and to seize opportunities to learn, understand and participate in national issues in a controlled, non-partisan and safe environment.

Zubedy is happy to bring you this opportunity. We invite you to attend the Gathering of Youth for Unity.

Let’s start young. This is a platform for you, as leaders of tomorrow, to start learning about being a driving force for unity today.

Places are limited, so it is important that you book your places early and do attend on that day (participation is free). We want to make sure you do not miss out on this opportunity.

Dr. Chandra has published more than twenty books on civilization dialogue, international politics, religion, human rights and Malaysian society, among which are Human Rights and the New World Order (1993), Rights Religion and Reform (2002), and Hegemony; Justice; Peace (2008).

In 2008, Tim Fernandez arrived at an awakening that when life is lived from the discovery of one’s centre, the point of reference for living shifts within. Therein, all resources to create one’s reality manifest itself and serves as an inspiration. He founded Live & Inspire with a simple intent of facilitating that shift of awareness. The global work today expands with an unconditional zest for life.

Anas Zubedy is a Malaysian businessman who speaks English, Malay, Hokkien and some Tamil. Born in Penang in 1964, his early experiences growing up in a multi-cultural setting created a deep desire to practice and promote unity. His first love is religion and culture, he is passionate about the oneness of humankind and believes all religions lead to goodness and should be more accessible to everyone.
