Student of Department of Management in Global Goals Youth Summit 2023, Malaysia
IPB University once again made Indonesia proud on the international stage. One of his students successfully represented Indonesia at Global Goals Youth Summit 2023 which was attended by 100 delegates from 20 countries around the world. The event took place over three days from 27-29 January 2023 at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
One of the representative from IPB University named Frans from Management Department, Faculty of Economics and Management. Frans managed to get the 2nd Runner Up at the SDGs Project and Presentation Competition. Frans and his team consisting of delegates from Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, and Indonesia presented project innovation ideas to support SDG Goal 3 Good Health and Well-Being, Goal 4 Quality Education, and Goal 5 Gender Equality.
“We chose to take this topic because there is an urgency that must be resolved, especially in the field of education in developing countries. Apart from that, several members of our team also come from the education sector and policy makers in developing countries,” said Frans, delegate from IPB University.
Global Goals Youth Summit 2023 consists of a series of agendas such as Global Goal Youth Training, Conference, Sustainability Mastermind, Project Presentation, Personal Branding Class, Cultural Exchange, Awarding and Inauguration Night, and closes with Social Action Activities at Refugees House Malaysia.bPrior to the Summit taking place, the delegates actually participated in an online pre-orientation program from 21-22 January 2023 to prepare delegates to be able to interact with other delegations at the offline session taking place in Malaysia. This pre orientation program provides comprehensive public speaking program sessions, leadership programs, designing innovation thinking, and SDGs Project Ideation.
“I am very grateful to be able to take part in this series of programs, starting from the pre-orientation period until the summit takes place. I managed to get out of my comfort zone and connected with many delegates from foreign countries. Not only that, I also got a lot of insights and messages from other delegates and I will share them through my Instagram account,” concluded Frans.
