PETALING JAYA: The Youth and Sports Ministry has launched the TN50 Youth Canvas, a digital report that documents the aspirations of Malaysian youths, and invites youth to give their feedback on the National Transformation 2050 (TN50) before the report is finalised and submitted to the Prime Minister.
The TN50 Youth Canvas outlines and summarises the aspirations of over 1.7 million people the ministry has reached out to across the country this year.
A draft copy of the report can currently be viewed on the TN50 website. Youths can read about the issues highlighted and send their feedback and aspirations.
The TN50 Youth Canvas is separated into various categories: Dynamic Economy, Fulfilling Work; Education for the Future; A Fair and Cohesive Society; A Foundation of Health and Well-being; Responsible Stewardship of our Resources; Effective and Accountable Governance; and A Vibrant, Winning Nation.
Under each category, there is an introduction to the topic, comments and ideas from youths, and infographics that reflect key points.
On every page of the digital report, users are able to submit their own thoughts to contribute to the individual topic or theme under each category.
In a section that asks youths to share areas they hope to see Malaysia as a Top 20 nation, some of the top areas based on popular votes are: Income Distribution, Human Development, Environmental Preservation, Quality of Education System, and Gender Fairness.
The TN50 Youth Canvas is aimed at gathering final youth feedback on TN50 before the Ministry's report is finalised and presented to the Prime Minister in January 2018.
It will serve as important input into the Government's TN50 policy formulation work.
Youths can share their TN50 thoughts and ideas by interacting on the TN50 Youth Canvas page on the TN50 website or use the hashtag #ideaTN50 in their social media posts.
The deadline to submit feedback is Dec, 31, 2017.
The public can also follow the TN50 Youth Canvas on its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the handle @myTN50.
