Ceritera 157

On the 30th of May 2009
Dear Friends,
Following the success of our IYEP 2007 & 2008, we are pleased to invite your students to the 3rd INTER-CIVILIZATIONAL YOUTH ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM (IYEP3)

The International Movement for a Just World (JUST), Malaysia; is organizing the 3nd Inter-civilizational Youth Engagement Program (IYEP) on the theme:
Ethics and the Global Economic Crisis: Pointers for the Future

The Program, will bring together some 50 youths between the ages of 21 and 25 of different nationalities andreligions to reflect upon inter-civilizational relations in today’s world, based on global monetary and economic challenges. The uniqueness of the program lies in that the global economic crisis discourse will be underlined by the shared spiritual and moral discourse each civilization can bring to the debate. This year, the emphasis will again be upon the young participants themselves and their ideas and visions for the future.

With this objective in mind, we are now starting our process of recruitment of participants. It would be much appreciated if you could nominate 1 or 2 candidates from among your young employees, interns or members to participate in our Program.

For this purpose we are enclosing the nomination form. We would be grateful if the forms duly filled could be returned to the address below by 31August 2009.

For more insight into what JUST and the IYEP program are all about please visit www.just-international.org and go to YOUTUBE using keyword ‘IYEP2’ to see highlights of IYEP2.

Information about the selection process

As highlighted previously, the youths themselves will be held responsible for initiating debates and discussions.

Given this emphasis, the organizers have worked out a careful process of selecting participants who have the potential to contribute in a significant manner to the Engagement Program. Candidates should be between 21 and 25 years of age. There should also be a healthy gender and religious balance. The selection process will happen over a few weeks and eventually a total of 50 participants will be selected for the Program. Therefore, it is important you send in your nominees as soon as possible.

Since the Program will be conducted entirely in English, the nominees should have an excellent command of the English language. They should also exhibit a keen interest in, and display some awareness of world affairs. Given the particular orientation of this year’s Program, we would expect applicants to be aware of the Global Financial and Economic Crisis. One also hopes that those nominated will be amiable and friendly, with a team spirit. They should also be respectful towards religions and cultures other than their own.

It should be noted that the cost of accommodation, meals and seminar facilities will be covered by the organizers and participants would not be required to pay any fee. They will however be required to make and pay for their own travel arrangements to and from the JUST office in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. We thank you most sincerely for reading this invitation. Your support and cooperation is much appreciated. We are looking forward to a positive response from your esteemed organisation.
