WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE AT INTERNATIONAL YOUTH EXCHANGE PROGRAM (MIYE6)
I am Mohammad Zohrul Islam from engineering faculty. Lately, I have participated in the 6th Malaysia International Youth exchange program (MIYE6) which was held on 25 to 27 January 2020 at The International Youth Centre, Cheras. In this article I am going to share my experience with MIYE6. First and foremost, I would like to take the chance to express my cordial gratitude to PUTRA International Centre (i-PUTRA) for giving me the wonderful life changing opportunity to be a part of this programme. The program entitled Environmental Sustainability for ASEAN and was designed to accelerate youth networking in building better future for all by achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. The key purpose of this program is to make a borderless platform for all Nationals to strengthen friendship and cooperation among young talents. For the first time, MIYE6 opened its door for all young leaders around the world beyond ASEAN to experience youth exchange. MIYE6 was organized jointly by the committee for ASEAN youth Corporation (CAYC) and Malaysia Youth Council (MYC) in partnership with International Youth Centre (MYC) and the Ministry Of Youth and Sports Malaysia (KBS). The programme were participated by 30 youth leaders from 12 countries including Malaysia. In the activity all participants were divided into 5 different team consisting of 6 members in each group. Each group had distinct name and theme song which represented their inner power and strength. It is worth mentioning that we were 8 participants from UPM in the program. The entire program consisting of workshop on sustainable development goal (SDG), our land and environment sustainability was wonderful. MIYE6 highlighted 3 SDG goals among 17 called climate action (Sl-13), life below water (Sl-14) and life on land (So-15) in the conference to educate and empower youth in achieving sustainable healthy environment for all. Moreover, games, hiking, cooking, cultural performance, sharing ideas, video presentation, and teamwork were the amazing and fantastic parts of the program. Image: The programme also provide delicious meals for us to try. Interesting thing, we did not play games for fun only but through games we learned to solve problems in a creative and efficient way within a very short period of time. We enjoyed every team work because it taught us how to cope with problems wisely and optimally despite of having different points of views of each member. While hiking we came to know a number of flora names and we enjoyed the cold air in the jungle and fascinating natural beauty. The enchanting waterfall and melodious sound of birds are still vivid in my mind. Image: Briefing were conducted before hiking activity. Image: Beautiful waterfall in the jungle Image: Wonderful experience in making traditional bamboo rice cooking. Through all these activities, this program developed our leadership quality, tolerance attitude, self-exploration, lifelong global friendship, cross-cultural taste of different countries. Overall, it installed in our mind a positive sense of well-being of all animals and plants in our natural eco-system. In video presentation our group, Titanium, got champion award where we presented how we contaminate water and the consequences of drinking polluted water. In the end, the idea of empowering youth around the world is one of the best decision to protect and preserve the environment all over the world as a global citizen. If youth leaders get opportunity to exercise their talents in reaching their hope and ambition, then these youth can play tremendous role in making this world safer, more secure and sustainable for all. Last but not least, MIYE6 has transferred successfully the strongest message to preserve our environment in order to get rid of the detrimental effect of climate change, global warming, environment pollution and deforestation.

MALACCA, 1 March 2020 – Putra International Centre (iPUTRA), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and the Buddies Association have conducted a trip to Malacca for the semester two 2019/2020 internationals. The registration session started at 7.00am at Dewan Besar UPM. The program was participated by 125 international students, five iPUTRA staff and 22 Buddies. The historic city of Malacca was selected as the venue of the program to assist the non-local students to experience Malaysia by touring around the city of historical adventures. The visit included touring around Muzium Samudera, Bukit St. Paul, Kota A Famosa, Gereja St. John, The Stadthuys and Rumah Kediaman Syed Al Attas. Students were given the opportunity to visit Jonker Street to have a taste of the authentic Malaysian street food such as Cendol, Asam Laksa, Kuih- Muih and more. The photography session was also conducted joyfully at scenic places occupied with murals and beautiful scenery. “In spite of the heat due to the hot weather, this would definitely not be an obstacle for me from enjoying my day in Malacca. There are tons of unseen things and untried cuisines. I will absolutely be back again,” said Marco Vinicio Ovalles Cardenas, a Mexican student. The participants gathered at 3.00pm after the exhaustion of visiting Malacca and they safely arrived in UPM at 6.00pm. The visit impacted the internationals differently and it is seen as a good start for them to be more insightful of Malaysia from different perspectives.
