KUALA LUMPUR: Twenty youth leaders will spend an hour with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today and share views on the economy, environment and politics.

The mentoring session is part of the Youth Action Forum which is the culmination of the inaugural three-day Youth Nation Summit here.

The summit, which ended yesterday, was organised by AISEC Malaysia which is a youth organisation and myHarapan, a youth trust foundation.

Organising chairman and incoming AISEC Malaysia president Cheah Kar Fei said the 20 youth leaders were hand-picked by their peers to share what was discussed at the summit with Najib.

“The closed-door session will see them interacting with the Prime Minister and sharing the youths' ideas and recommendations.

“The summit is a platform for youths to discover their potential and make an impact on society,” he said yesterday.

Youths, he said, were taught how to address businesses, media and the government, initiate their own corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects and hone their leadership skills, among others.

Cheah said the participants' CSR projects, which included an HIV/AIDS awareness campaign, would be displayed during the Youth Action Forum today.

Najib will give his opening remarks before the closed-door session and will address the entire crowd at lunch later.
